In the amazing city Dubai, history was made with Panasonic Jaguar’s team wining the 3rd place at FIA Formula E for the first time ever for both Panasonic Jaguar’s racing team and the young new Zealander lead driver Mitch Evans.
Evans was the fourth driver to arrive to the finish line, however, he was announced the 3rd winner after the disqualification of Audi‘s driver Daniel Abt who finished the race as first but failed to meet the race specifications set by Formula E.
“I am proud to secure Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s first podium in Formula E. It is bittersweet as Daniel (Abt) is a good guy and a mate of mine. After a tough year in our first season, this is a great reward for the hard work of everyone in the team. Tonight we will celebrate this achievement together and then work hard to repeat it,” Said Mitch Evans.
