Mitch Evans Wins First Formula E Race for Panasonic Jaguar Racing in Rome


Mitch Evans made history for Panasonic Jaguar Racing, claiming the team’s first ever ABB FIA Formula E win in Rome. It is Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991.During a qualifying session plagued with intermittent rain showers, an impressive performance from Mitch saw the Kiwi driver clinch P2 from Super Pole. Teammate Alex claimed a ninth place qualifying, before being penalised for exceeding the maximum power limit and started at P21. An early collision at turn 17/18 caused a pile up of several cars and brought out a red flag. Mitch drove confidently at the restart and managed to overtake Andre Lotterer with Attack Mode at turn 11 for the lead of the race. Despite Lotterer activating Attack More a lap later, the Kiwi driver defended well and held onto his first win in the series. The Panasonic Jaguar Racing team will now prepare for the Paris E-Prix on 27 April.
