Evans On Podium In New York

New Zealand’s Mitch Evans has claimed his his sixth podium of the season at the New York City E-Prix, the twelfth round of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship

Evans lined up sixth on the grid after topping qualifying group two but narrowly missed out on the semi-final Duels by 0.006 of a second to Alexander Sims.

The Kiwi had a challenging start to the New York City E-Prix, being passed by Jake Dennis in the Avalanche Andretti. Evans and the team then delivered a solid ATTACK MODE strategy and impressive overtakes to make progress through the field, moving him up into fourth position.

With 18 minutes remaining Evans attempted an overtake on Nyck de Vries but hit a pothole on the dirty side of the track and displayed lightning fast reactions to control his Jaguar I-TYPE 5. He fought his way back onto the lead group to take the final podium position, overtaking Sims, with three minutes remaining of the E-Prix.

Evans moves up to third in the drivers’ standings, sixteen points behind the leader. The Jaguar TCS Racing team brought home a solid 25 points haul in their championship campaign to sit fourth in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship teams’ standings.

Rounds thirteen and fourteen of the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship take place on the streets of London, on 30 and 31 July.
