Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

  • Mitch Evans finished fourth for Jaguar TCS Racing in the eighth round of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship
  • Teammate Sam Bird finished nineteenth after he had to pit for a new front wing, following a collision
  • Mitch Evans moves to fifth in the drivers’ standings while Sam Bird is seventh
  • Jaguar TCS Racing remain third in the teams’ standings
  • The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will head to the iconic circuit in Monaco for the ninth round on 6 May 2023

Mitch Evans lined up P5 on the grid after successfully making it through to the qualifying Duels in damp conditions. He was defeated by the eventual pole sitter Robin Frijns, while teammate Sam Bird started in P11. In another captivating and strategic race, around the 2.355km German circuit, Mitch held his position off-the-line for the first four laps. When the two ABT race cars and DS Penske’s ATTACK MODE strategies came into play, Mitch started to move up the order before taking the lead of the Berlin E-Prix on lap six. The team executed another strong energy management strategy which saw Mitch move between fourth and eighth for the majority of the race, making some impressive overtakes along the way. For the third race in a row, Mitch has demonstrated the pace of the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 and scored solid points for the team.

Sam was also in a competitive position, climbing his way through the field, but was unfortunately hit from behind and forced into the car in front, damaging his front wing. The Brit pitted for a new front nose but without a safety car, Sam was unable to catch the back of the field and finished nineteenth, out of the points.

The Jaguar customer team Envision Racing celebrated their first win of the partnership. Nick Cassidy’s win marked the third Jaguar-powered win in a row this season. Jaguar TCS Racing remain third in the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship teams’ standings


 "We had another strong race here in Berlin today. After making history yesterday with our first 1-2 since 1991, this was a race that ultimately could have gone our way, in the end we narrowly missed out on the podium. Mitch drove a fantastic and composed race to secure fourth place and score really strong points for the team. The race was about track position at the right time, and it didn’t quite work out today in terms of the podium. Sam was very unlucky to be hit from the rear, which propelled him into the car in front and damaged his wing. It's hugely frustrating when someone else’s mistake hinders the result and what was potentially a double points finish. In summary though it’s been a very good weekend for the team here in Berlin. We have been fast and efficient on all race tracks this season and this bodes well for the rest of the season. We will now work very hard to repeat the speed and efficiency in Monaco".

JAMES BARCLAY, JAGUAR TCS RACING TEAM PRINCIPAL


"Overall it’s been a really great weekend but I do feel like we missed out on a podium today. The Jaguar I-TYPE 6 has the pace and efficiency but I didn’t get to the front of the pack when I needed to. I’ve collected more solid points for my championship campaign and I’m looking forward to my home race in Monaco".

MITCH EVANS, JAGUAR TCS RACING DRIVER, #9


"Today wasn’t my day. Unfortunately someone went into the back of my Jaguar I-TYPE 6 which forced me into the car in front and it damaged my front wing. It’s disappointing as it’s not a mistake that I or the team made but it was out of our hands. Overall, we’ve had a great weekend as a team and I’m really proud of everyone. I’m looking forward to fighting for more points in Monaco.”

SAM BIRD, JAGUAR TCS RACING DRIVER, #10
