As the leaders fought, Jaguar’s Mitch Evans methodically made his way through the midfield until he chased down the two pacesetters. With under ten minutes to go, Evans got around a slowing Vandoorne and quickly used his Attack Mode advantage to take the lead from Frijins. Evans was untouchable for the rest of the race and won his first race this season.

Mitch Evans and Stoffel Vandoorne would both hold to second and third, respectively, despite late challenges from Techeetah’s Jean-Éric Vergne and Jaguar’s Sam Bird. Venturi’s Edo Mortara, who finished seventh, still leads the Drivers’ Championship by three points over Vandoorne. Formula E will race again in Rome tomorrow.
