Jaguar TCS Racing Dominates Monaco E-Prix with Evans Securing First Victory

In a stunning display of strategic prowess and teamwork, Mitch Evans secured his maiden victory in the 2024 Monaco E-Prix, leading Jaguar TCS Racing to a commanding one-two finish alongside teammate Nick Cassidy.

The triumph marked a breakthrough for Evans, who had narrowly missed out on victory in four previous attempts despite leading the races.

Executing their team’s strategy flawlessly, Evans and Cassidy surged to the front of the pack on Lap 11, overtaking their rivals, including early leader Stoffel Vandoorne of DS Penske. Strategic deployment of ATTACK MODE boosts further bolstered their lead, allowing Evans to maintain control amidst challenges such as an early Virtual Safety Car period triggered by Edo Mortara‘s incident at Swimming Pool.

As the race unfolded, Evans relinquished the lead to Cassidy on Lap 14 before reclaiming it on Lap 17, ultimately clinching a well-deserved victory. DS Penske celebrated a podium finish with Vandoorne, marking a significant achievement for the team in front of their home crowd.

Evans’ triumph catapults him to fifth in the drivers’ standings, solidifying his status as a frontrunner for the championship in Season 10, while Jaguar TCS Racing maintains its impressive lead in the Teams’ standings.

Behind the dominant Jaguar duo, Jean-Éric Vergne of DS Penske secured fourth place, followed by Pascal Wehrlein of TAG Heuer Porsche in fifth and Oliver Rowland of Nissan Formula E Team in sixth. Antonio Felix da Costa of TAG Heuer Porsche claimed seventh place, with Nissan’s Sacha Fenestraz and Maserati MSG Racing’s Maximilian Günther securing eighth and ninth places respectively. Norman Nato of Andretti Formula E rounded out the top ten.

Reflecting on his victory, Mitch Evans expressed elation and relief at finally clinching his first win in Monaco, highlighting the significance of the achievement for himself and the team. His teammate, Nick Cassidy, echoed the sentiment, emphasizing the collective effort behind their remarkable success.

As the season progresses, the stage is set for further excitement and intense competition on the track, with the next rounds scheduled to unfold in Berlin on May 11 and 12.
