Mitch Evans makes history for Jaguar TCS Racing. Having said that, Evans became the first driver to win both races in a double-header weekend in Rome. Besides that, he is the only third driver in Formula E history to win an E-Prix on two consecutive days.
“A double win for Jaguar TCS Racing in Rome. Weekends like this are incredibly hard to achieve but it’s down to the huge effort from all of the team to deliver this historic weekend for Jaguar. Rome has been kind to us with five podiums and three wins in three years and it’s great to have our season back on track after such a strong performance from Mitch and the team. We know how competitive this championship is so we’ll take this momentum forward from Rome, keep working hard, and keep building on our championship in Monaco,” as commented by James Barclay, Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal.
Furthermore, both Mitch Evans and Sam Bird achieved a fourth and fifth position on the grid respectively after a successful qualifying session that saw both drivers compete with each other in the quarter-final duel. During the first ten minutes of the race, Mitch Evans overtook Jake Dennis thereby moving to a podium position. Moving on, he even overtook André Lotterer and Jean- Éric Vergne with an aim to take the lead of the Rome E-Prix.
