Formula E – Season 10

Dataline Mexico City – January 13th 2024

Formula E reports: TAG Heuer Porsche's Pascal Wehrlein secured victory, as he ran another well-managed drive to the top step in the opening round of Season 10, leading home Envision Racing's Sebastien Buemi and Jaguar TCS Racing debutant Nick Cassidy. The German threw down the gauntlet with a controlled drive from lights out and pole to the chequered flag. Maximilian Guenther (Maserati MSG Racing) took the flag in fourth.

Says Jaguar TCS Racing: In his debut race for the team, Nick Cassidy secured a third-place podium finish and the fastest lap in the opening round of the 2024 Championship. Teammate Mitch Evans drove an impressive race to finish in fifth place, bringing home all-important points for the team. In qualifying, both drivers made it through to the semi-final of the Duels. During the Qualifying session, Mitch secured the fastest lap of the weekend - showcasing the pace of the I-TYPE 6. After a one-place grid penalty for both drivers due to a procedural infringement, Nick lined up fourth on the grid, with Mitch in fifth. When the lights went green, Nick and Mitch held their position behind Wehrlein, Buemi and Günther. After Nick took his first Attack Mode, the Jaguar drivers rotated for fourth, before Mitch took his own Attack Mode which moved him back to fifth. A safety car meant an additional two laps were added. After the green flag, Mitch took his second Attack Mode, remaining in fifth. Cassidy moved up into third place, which he held for the remainder of the 37-lap event. Mitch was on the defence for more than half the race, holding off the remainder of the field around the Autódromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit for an incredible 23 laps. Buemi’s second, meant that three out of four Jaguar-powered cars finished in the top five.

Dateline Diriyah – January 26th 2024

Formula E reports: Reigning champion Jake Dennis (Avalanche Andretti) won by more than 13 seconds in the first round of the Diriyah double-header under the lights in Saudi Arabia. Polesitter Jean-Eric Vergne (DS PENSKE) had bolted off the line to hold an early lead and was forced into fending off the Jaguar TCS Racing pair of Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy as the race reached its climax. A last lap lunge from Evans, running third at the time but with second in his sights, cost the Kiwi a podium as he overcooked the stop into Turn 18, handing third to his teammate Cassidy.

Jaguar TCS Racing: It was two out of two for Nick Cassidy as he secured his second successive podium. Nick lined up in seventh place on the grid after he was knocked out of the quarter-finals of the Qualifying Duels by teammate Mitch Evans. Nick carved his way through the pack, and, by lap 24 he was up into fourth just behind Mitch. In a valiant effort, Nick supported his teammates’ race by allowing him the space to defend Andretti Autosport’s Norman Nato, as well as defending NEOM McLaren’s Sam Bird in the final stages of the race.

On the illuminated track, Mitch Evans had an action-packed race as he challenged for the win and podium throughout the full 37 laps. Starting on the front row of the grid after a successful Qualifying session, Mitch held his position off the start line. For the first third of the race, Mitch, Jake Dennis and Jean-Éric Vergne rotated places. On the 12th lap Mitch skilfully overtook Vergne to take second position. Five laps later, Vergne overtook Mitch to regain second. In the last few seconds of the race Mitch made a final attempt for second, only to run wide on the exit falling back to fifth at the flag.

Dateline Diriyah – January 27th 2024

Formula E: Jaguar TCS Racing's Nick Cassidy sealed a first win for the team of Season 10 in a measured, composed drive to take to the top step in Round 3 - his 50th Formula E race. Robin Frijns (Envision Racing) took second, while Oliver Rowland (Nissan) - the polesitter, ended the race in third.

Says Jaguar TCS Racing: Nick Cassidy lined up third on the grid. After holding position at the start of the race, by the fifth lap he moved into the lead of the 2024 Diriyah E-Prix after his podium opponents took their first ATTACK MODE decisions. For the next phase of the race, the pace was frenetic at the front with Nick and Robin Frijns from Jaguar's customer team, pulling out a lead on the rest of the pack. A crucial moment in the race was Nick building a sufficient gap for his second ATTACK MODE which meant he could come out ahead of Frijns and maintain the lead. On the last lap, under the lights, Nick secured the fastest lap to add one more point to his tally for round three. Mitch Evans rounded out the points with a determined tenth-place finish, after starting in P13 on the grid. Despite crossing the finish line in 11th place, an FIA investigation on Andretti’s Jake Dennis for overtaking under a yellow flag promoted Mitch back into tenth place.

Dateline Sao Paulo - March 16th 2024: Swapping carnival feathers for electric race cars, energy radiated through the Anhembi Sambadrome this afternoon as the 22 drivers took to the track.After lining up on the grid in P4, following a strong qualifying performance which included progressing into the qualifying Duels, Mitch and the team executed an impressive race under the São Paulo sun in the Jaguar I-TYPE 6. Holding his own to both defend and attack throughout the 34-lap race, Mitch maintained a second-place position behind NEOM McLaren’s Sam Bird, before overtaking him with six laps to go. Mitch and the team strategically managed the race from the front for the remaining laps but with only two corners until the checkered flag, the battery temperature became too high, causing the car to lose power and Sam Bird was able to pass and take the win. Tackling the 11 turns of the 2.93km track, Nick was determined to climb from his P9 starting position. For the early phase of the race, Nick focussed on energy management and positioning his Jaguar I-TYPE 6 ready to progress at the appropriate opportunity. Unfortunately, the concertina effect caught Nick out resulting in damage to the front wing of his car which caused his eventual retirement from the race.
