Mitch Evans secured his third podium for Jaguar Racing this season after a thrilling race on the iconic streets on Monaco.
The Kiwi started the race in third after a strong qualifying performance - making it through to Super Pole from group one. Evans had a busy drive behind the wheel of his Jaguar I-TYPE 5, tussling with the leaders before making a momentous overtake on Antonio Felix Da Costa into Beau Rivage to move into first position, with 15 minutes to go. On the final lap Mitch had to defend heavily from Da Costa who had fractionally more energy and was able snatch the lead into the chicane.
"I got myself into a great position today – leading in Monaco is amazing but that came at a cost with energy I used to get there. I was really hoping to ride it out until the end but it just wasn’t meant to be today. It’s still great points for the team, we can take the positives from today and we can move forward and get ready for Mexico. We know we’re really competitive and we proved that again here in Monaco."
