    MEXICO CITY 01.04.2017

    Panasonic Jaguar Racing earned its first Championship points in style, after a thrilling race where Mitch Evans and Adam Carroll finished in P4 and P8 respectively, in only the fourth FIA Formula E race for the British team.

    • The Jaguar duo scored an impressive 16 points, leaping to ninth place in the Team Standings.

      The Jaguar I-TYPEs started alongside each other in P10 and P11, and quickly got to grips with the challenging circuit. Both drivers stayed cool amidst the chaos to consistently battle within the top ten points-scoring positions.

      Mitch and Adam efficiently managed their race strategy, pit stops and energy, with Evans surviving heavy contact from a spinning competitor to record a double points finish.

      Watch all the highlights from the latest Formula E race held at Mexico City’s Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.

      James Barclay, Team Director: “A great result. Both Adam and Mitch raced really well and showed pace when needed. To get to this position after only four races is a good sign of what’s to come, but we’re very realistic on what we need to build on. For a new team it gives you energy, and is a bit of payback for the long hours everyone has put in.”

      Mitch Evans, #20: “Today was a crazy race from lap one. After the first safety car we got into a nice rhythm and I ran on really good energy levels and a strong pace. Adam and I were on slightly different strategies, which opened up the opportunity for me to overtake him. The race got juicy towards the end with both Mahindra cars and Nico Prost crashing into each other. I don’t know how my I-TYPE didn’t sustain any damage – I was very lucky. To finish with double points is huge for the team.” 

      Adam Carroll, #47: “For our fourth race ever, it’s really positive. Hopefully this is the start of more to come, but we’re keeping our feet on the ground and still have a lot to learn. This Championship is very competitive, so to just score points, especially for a new team, is a big achievement.”

      Round five of the FIA Formula E Championship will take place in Monaco on 13 May.
