Panasonic Jaguar Racing-coureur Mitch Evans heeft gezorgd voor sensatie tijdens de ABB FIA Formula E Marrakesh E Prix. De 25-jarige Evans begon op P24, haalde 18 auto's in en finishte op P6. Hij reed bovendien de snelste rondetijd van de race.

Mitch Evans haalde tijdens de ABB FIA Formula E Marrakesh E Prix negen punten binnen voor het Britse team. Ook kreeg hij dit seizoen zijn tweede award voor de snelste rondetijd. Panasonic Jaguar Racing-coureur James Calado behaalde zijn beste kwalificatiepositie van zijn debuutseizoen: P10. Na een lastige tweede helft van de E Prix kwam hij met zijn Jaguar I TYPE 4 als zestiende over de finish.

Tweede plaats overall
Mitch Evans staat na de eerste helft van het Formula E-seizoen op de tweede plaats van het rijderskampioenschap. Panasonic Jaguar Racing neemt de derde plaats van het constructeurskampioenschap in.

James Barclay, Panasonic Jaguar Racing Team Director: "After a long race with no safety cars or yellow flags, the performance from Mitch and the team to make up 18 positions and finish strongly in the points was very impressive. It's very difficult to come through the field without gaining advantage from those factors and so overall an amazing race for Mitch and the team. We also scored important points with fastest lap but it doesn't fully make up for the lost opportunity in qualifying where we had the quickest car. We regrouped and bounced back today which is a positive and a sign of how well the team is working. On the other side of the garage, James improved in qualifying and started the race well, but performance fell off towards the end which we will now review. Overall the team recovered well this weekend, secured crucial points and importantly we clearly have the right ingredients for another strong performance next time out."

Mitch Evans, #20: "A massive race. I managed to gain 18 places to finish P6 from the back of the grid and achieve fastest lap so I will take that result with open arms. After an unfortunate qualifying the priority in the race was damage limitation during the E Prix and a huge thanks for the team for a great strategy in the race. I wanted to send a strong message to the rest of the field and I believe this performance does that."

James Calado, #51: "Qualifying was good, if a little cautious, starting P10 felt like solid progress and we were only a fraction off getting into Super Pole. I made a good start in the race, gaining a couple of positions in the first lap which is positive. I began to struggle later in the race with the balance of the Jaguar I TYPE 4 which made it difficult to maintain my minimum speed and affected my energy management. We will investigate why that happened. We need to take the positives from today and look into convert that into points next time."
