Misano E-Prix is going to be a 'wild one' says poleman Evans

The Julius Baer Pole Position holder previewed this afternoon's first Misano E-Prix.


Mitch Evans managed to earn his and Jaguar TCS Racing’s first Julius Baer Pole Position of Season 10 in Misano, as the championship prepared for its first race at the new circuit. It’s the Kiwi’s seventh career pole, and from his discussions post-race it sounds like quite the surprise. 

QUALIFYING REPORT: Evans and Jaguar achieve maiden Misano pole

Honestly, I wasn't expecting that when I woke up this morning,” Evans said after the pole position achievement. “Normally, these tracks don't really tend to suit our package as much, but I think the guys and girls at Jaguar have done an incredible job to put it together. It’s a good car for this type of track!”

Evans finished sixth in the second free practice that occurred earlier this morning, but managed to make his way through to the Duels. He battled NEOM McLaren’s Sam Bird and Jake Hughes in the Quarter Finals and Semi Finals, respectively, before taking on the DS PENSKE of Jean-Eric Vergne.

“We just kept calm, and the car was really consistent throughout qualifying which I wasn't really experiencing through practice,” Evans added. “I was able to kind of build into it and build my confidence. So, full credit to everyone on the team.”

The Jaguar powertrain is one of the best on the grid when it comes to energy management, which could definitely work to the team’s advantage. But with such long straights and this being another track where the peloton-style of racing is expected, pole might not be the best place to start when it comes to lights out. 

GET TO KNOW: What does the Misano E-Prix circuit look like?

“It’s probably not the track you want to be at pole at, but I'll take it! I'll take the points and then we're obviously focused for the race this afternoon. It's going to be a wild one.


“Let's see, at the end of the day of how how kind it is to me. But so far, yeah, it's been a good day.”
