PODIUM FINISH AT SEASON FINALE IN NYC
Updated: Jul 18, 2019
Mitch Evans claimed his third podium of the season, finishing second in Saturday’s New York City E-Prix – the penultimate ABB FIA Formula E race in the 2018/19 season.
"Mitch showed again why he has been one of the standout drivers in Formula E this season. He did a good job under difficult track conditions for the drivers in group one. He had his work cut out with a grid position of P13. In the race, he put in an incredible performance to finish just behind Sebastien Buemi in second. Arguably one of the best drives of the season. We are already looking ahead to tomorrow and giving everything we can in the final race of the season. We want to give Mitch and Alex the best possible opportunity to finish the season in style." James Barclay - Panasonic Jaguar Racing Team Director
"To get up to the podium from P13 was unexpected but a fantastic result for everyone in the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team. Since we made some changes in Rome, the car has been rapid, so it’s great to capitalise on that pace. (...) Tomorrow is all about qualifying – to make Super Pole from group one is virtually impossible, but we’ll be giving everything for the final race. While there is still a chance I will keep fighting until the chequered flag." Mitch Evans
