POLE AND PODIUM FOR EVANS IN SANTIAGO
Mitch Evans returned to the podium in Santiago, securing P3 after qualifying on Pole Position.
Mitch put in a faultless qualifying performance with a clean sweep, topping both group and Super Pole sessions. The Kiwi driver led the pack off the line but then encountered an issue receiving his energy information. Once the team had successfully recovered the system issue, he had over consumed on energy and also had to manage his battery temperature. This energy deficit meant that Mitch had to run a more conservative pace which allowed Max Günther, on Attack Mode, to overtake as well as António Félix da Costa later on in the race. Despite the technical issue Evans recovered well and delivered a race that allowed him to maintain P3, securing a well-deserved podium after a challenging day and conditions that proved difficult for many teams and drivers behind.
