The strategic masterclass that secured Jaguar a Monaco Formula E 1-2

Amid the glitz and glamour of Monaco, Jaguar drivers Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy reminded the rest of Formula E just how much of a threat they are for this year’s title after securing a crushing 1-2

On a weekend when the British manufacturer committed its future to the all-electric championship, a strategic masterclass in the Monaco E-Prix also cemented Jaguar’s grip on the teams’ standings at the season’s halfway point. From the outset Evans had shown impressive pace in the principality, topping both of Saturday morning’s practice sessions, and he carried that form into qualifying, where it seemed Jaguar would secure a front-row lock-out. But both Evans and Cassidy made minor mistakes in their semi-final duels against Pascal Wehrlein and Stoffel Vandoorne respectively, leaving the pair on the second row but in position to still capitalise on Jaguar’s strong package.

While polesitter Wehrlein and fellow front-row starter Vandoorne held position off the line, Evans went side-by-side with Cassidy through Ste Devote and emerged ahead of his team-mate in a flashpoint that would ultimately determine the winner.
