A CHAOTIC VALENCIA E-PRIX
The second round of the double-header in Valencia saw Mitch once again qualifying in group one. While Mitch Evans came second in the group, with significant track evolution due to the track drying out, qualifying results saw teams in group four set lap times 2.3 seconds quicker than drivers in group one.
After the chaos of the day before where Mitch started in P17 due to track evolution compared to the other qualifying groups, he fought his way through the wet field and gained seven places to put him in a points scoring position. An incident with Sette Câmara following the ATTACK MODE zone resulted in the Kiwi having to retire with 15 minutes of the race remaining.
Mitch Evans and Sam Bird started the sixth round of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in P19 and P20 respectively. Starting from the back of the grid, the team implemented a race strategy that showed promise but unfortunately didn’t work out in a race which was incredibly hard to make progress and favoured the teams and drivers who qualified in the top six positions.
Mitch Evans made decisive moves to carve his way through the pack from P19 to P9 showing the fast pace of the Jaguar I-TYPE 5, before having to drop back to conserve energy for a race which could have potentially run a lap longer. He eventually finished out of the points in P15.
