Evans wins his second E-Prix for Panasonic Jaguar Racing
style=”light” size=”5″]Jaguar Racing driver Mitch Evans won the Mexico City E-Prix in one of the most dominant performances in Formula E, crossing the line more than four seconds ahead of second-placed António Félix da Costa. Evans controlled the race from the first corner of the first lap.
After topping his qualifying group session and achieving second in Super Pole, Evans took the lead from André Lotterer (TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E driver) following a battle on the first corner and delivered an outstanding drive to take his second E-Prix for Jaguar Racing.
Says Evans, “This result is a huge testament to the team and everyone’s hard work – what a brilliant weekend for the team. “It is great to show the pace that the Jaguar I-TYPE 4 has, not just over one lap, but a whole race.
“After a close overtake with André Lotterer, I took the lead and then focused on keeping my head down and being as efficient as possible. We’ve really shown our pace this weekend and now the plan is to achieve this again across the season.” The weekend was bitter-sweet, though, after British teammate James Calado crossed the line in ninth before being disqualified due to a technical energy infringement.
