POINT SCORING CONTINUES IN FIRST PUEBLA E-PRIX
Jaguar Racing finished in the points with Mitch Evans after an eventful Puebla E-Prix which saw two safety car periods and more close racing action. Mitch has closed the gap to the current leader and is only four points behind in the Drivers’ World Championship and Jaguar Racing continue in second place in the Teams’ World Championship.
Mitch started in twelfth on the grid after finishing second in group one qualifying. The track evolution in between group one and group four was particularly evident in the colourful Mexican city of Puebla. In the race, which marks the halfway point in the season, the team delivered a solid ATTACK MODE and energy management strategy, allowing Evans to execute an impressive drive – carving his way through the pack and making strong decisive overtakes. A late safety car caused the all-electric racecars to bunch together. This combined with a second compulsory ATTACK MODE made further progress difficult for Mitch.
