Jaguar tops Manufacturers' Trophy standings as Nissan joins the fight in São Paulo

With Jaguar TCS Racing maintaining their high-scoring start to Season 10 with another podium, the British powertrain holds firm at the top of the newly formed Manufacturers' Trophy, while Nissan slots into third and closes the gap to Porsche in the standings after the fourth round in São Paulo.

The Jaguar I-TYPE 6 has continued to the form that saw the powertrain finish 1-2 in the Teams' standing by putting the powertrain from the legendary British marque right the top of the standings from the Manufacturers' Trophy that was introduced ahead of the 2024 São Paulo E-Prix.

Mitch Evans continued the podium run for Jaguar TCS Racing with a second-place finish in the hotly contested race around the Anhembi Sambadrome, with Envision Racing's Sebastien Buemi adding to the points for the British manufacturer with 10th and the fastest lap for an extra point.

The biggest points haul of the weekend goes to Nissan, the efficiency of the powertrain from the Japanese manufacturer was on the minds of the paddock heading into the race in Brazil, after the Nissan e-4ORCE 04 demonstrated its energy potential in Diriyah.

Powering the NEOM McLaren under Sam Bird, the experienced Brit pulled off a spectacular overtake in the final corners to return to his winning ways and score a debut win for McLaren and put Nissan back on the top step of the rostrum.

Oliver Rowland (Nissan) joined in the fun with an audacious move in the final corner sneaking up the inside as Andretti's Jake Dennis and Pascal Wehrlein (TAG Heuer Porsche) and pinched the third place trophy from the duelling pair.

A double podium for Nissan-powered machines with Bird on top and Rowland and pushing back both of the Porsches for third, brings them right into contention, closing down the German manufacturer to within just seven points for second in the standings.

How the scoring for the Manufacturers' Trophy works

The scoring for this trophy mirrors that of the Teams' Championship, with points awarded based on the performance of each manufacturer's two highest-scoring cars in every race (1st place: 25 points; 2nd place: 18 points; 3rd place: 15 points etc.). Points for Pole Position and Fastest Lap are also factored into the totals.
