  1. RACE REPORT
    BUENOS AIRES 18.02.17

    Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s South American FIA Formula E debut in Argentina produced more positives for the series’ newest team. 

    • Mitch Evans put together an impressive lap during qualifying to start from P7, just two positions outside the Super Pole group.  It was the first top ten position for the British team in only its third race.

      From lights to flag Mitch’s race was busy as he battled with Nico Prost and Felix Rosenqvist from the first corner.  Adam’s race was compromised from the opening moment when his car failed to get off the grid before he was able to start one lap down on the field.

      Ultimately Mitch narrowly missed out on the team’s debut points finishing P13.  Adam did his best to fight back to finish P17, maximising the opportunity to gain valuable track time and crucial data for the team to analyse ahead of the next race.

      Watch all the highlights from the latest Formula E race held at Buenos Aires’ Circuito de Puerto Madero.

      James Barclay, Panasonic Jaguar Racing, Team Director: “This was our best qualifying result this season. Things have truly come together and Mitch did really well managing to run with the front pack.”

      Mitch Evans, #20, P13:  “The first half of the race was good but I got a bit shuffled around in the beginning which meant that I lost two places, but then the full course yellow neutralised everything and I made up a few places. After that I was running with the front guys.”

      Adam Carroll, #47, P17: “Today was tough. The start of the day was promising, we just lost our way a little bit in the second practice as we wanted to keep the car safe for qualifying and not risk anything. I’d hoped to have a strong race and come through but I had an issue with the start, right when I was about to take off I couldn’t launch the car. We’re not sure why and it’s something that the engineers are looking into now. Luckily, I was able to get going and could continue and complete the race. We got a lot of good data out of it but unfortunately no result this time.”
