Mitch Evans lined up third on the grid after making it through to the semi-final qualifying Duels. In the first two corners of a wet Seoul E-Prix, Mitch used the performance of his Jaguar I-TYPE 5 and brilliant skill to overtake both Oliver Rowland and Lucas Di Grassi to take the lead of the race. Within seconds round fifteen of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship was red flagged and the cars returned to the paddock. At the restart, the Jaguar TCS Racing team delivered an incredible strategy to keep the Kiwi at the front of the pack during both of his ATTACK MODE activations. Mitch went on to secure the win, leading the race from the opening lap until the chequered flag.

Norman Nato lined up eleventh on the grid after a promising qualifying session for the Frenchman, who has not driven a Formula E car in a year. In the opening lap of the race, Nato hit the slippery side of the track and ended up with his Jaguar I-TYPE 5 in the barrier, along with seven other drivers. Norman’s Jaguar I-TYPE 5 needed a new nosecone, but the 30-year-old managed to navigate the 1998 Olympic Stadium and carry on the race once it restarted. Norman finished the penultimate round of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in thirteenth.

The Kiwi heads into Sunday’s finale 21 points behind championship leader Stoffel Vandoorne with 29 points available. Jaguar TCS Racing remain fourth in the ABB FIA Formula E teams’ standings, closing the gap to DS Techeetah to 29 points.

A phenomenal performance from Mitch and the team today and it’s an honour to be able to win the inaugural Seoul E-Prix. We said we would give it our absolute best to try and take this world championship right down to the wire and that’s exactly what we’ve delivered. I’m so proud of this team and what we’ve achieved today by digging deep and pushing right until the last race. With one race to go we will be doing what we can to keep this championship alive right down to the very last lap.

This was exactly what we needed today. It’s been a tricky day and a tough race to manage but the team have been amazing. I need to win again, in the final race of the season, to have a chance of the world championship but we’re going to give it everything we’ve got. I have a really smart group of guys and girls in our team and I know they’ll give me a rocket ship tomorrow.

MITCH EVANS JAGUAR TCS RACING DRIVER #9

First of all a huge congratulations to Mitch and the team. On my side, I had a good start to the day in FP1, FP2 and qualifying but I knew that the race was going to be a challenge. The rain came down hard, the visibility wasn’t great and I took the slippery side of the track and ended up in the wall. I still managed to finish the race and considering I haven’t been in a Formula E car for a year, I think it has been a good day. I’m looking forward to tomorrow!

NORMAN NATO JAGUAR TCS RACING DRIVER #10

The season finale of the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship takes place on the around the Jamsil Stadium Complex in Seoul, South Korea, tomorrow at 16:00 local time.
