Despite one of the most dominating performances in Formula E, new championship leader and Mexico City race winner Mitch Evans refuses to get too far ahead of himself in his quest for his first championship title.
"Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to be at the front but I'm not going to get too excited yet," says Mitch Evans cooly after dominating a frantic race in Mexico City.
After starting from second, the Panasonic Jaguar Racing driver stormed ahead of Pole sitter Andre Lotterer (DS Techeetah) to take an early lead, which he held to the very end.
"It feels really sweet because Santiago was a tough one for us in terms of our race management but today we obviously showed we fixed all the problems. I just want to thank the team for their work in between all the races," added the Kiwi driver.
Now leading the standings by one point, Evans sits ahead of BMW i Andretti Motorsport's Alexander Sims and DS Techeetah's Antonio Felix da Costa.
"I didn't even know I was the Championship leader," says Evans moments after stepping out of the car. "It's nice to have, don't get me wrong but it's still way too early - things can change pretty quick, so I'm not going to get too far ahead of myself - things can change race by race."
"I know how tight it is between the top ten in the standings but I'm sure, from one race to the next things are going to switch and change pretty frequently."
With the next race in Marrakesh on the February 29, Evans will be looking to extend his points lead considerably as his maiden title campaign gets off to a roaring start.
