The inaugural Sanya E-Prix saw Panasonic Jaguar Racing driver Mitch Evans climb eleven places to finish ninth and claim two valuable points – one of only two drivers to score in every ABB FIA Formula E race so far this season.
"In qualifying I lost a lot of time compared to practice. The car went off – we didn’t change anything, so it’s a bit of a mystery, I don’t know what happened. It’s frustrating as well. I was quite happy with the car in free practice but it felt like a completely different car in qualifying, which is frustrating. To start right at the back is never what we want. During races you are left with too much work to do. I also had signage caught around my steering rack at one point and I couldn’t see. When you start last all you can hope for is something, and we got points. For our standards it’s not where we should be. Rome is a great track, we were competitive last year. We’ve lost a little bit of ground in the championship but I’ve got full faith in the team and hopefully we can get back at the front." Mitch Evans
