Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 20 July 2022 – Mitch Evans takes his sixth podium of the season at the New York City E-Prix, with Sam Bird climbing an incredible eleven places to finish fifth in the twelfth round of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. The Jaguar TCS Racing team brought home a solid 25 points haul in their championship campaign. Mitch Evans lined up sixth on the grid after topping qualifying group two but narrowly missed out on the semi-final Duels by 0.006 of a second to Alexander Sims. The Kiwi had a challenging start to the New York City E-Prix, being passed by Jake Dennis in the Avalanche Andretti. Mitch and the team then delivered a solid ATTACK MODE strategy and impressive overtakes to make progress through the field moving him up into fourth position. With 18 minutes remaining Mitch attempted an overtake on Nyck de Vries but hit a pothole on the dirty side of the track and displayed lightening fast reactions to control his Jaguar I-TYPE 5. He fought his way back onto the lead group to take the final podium position, overtaking Sims, with three minutes remaining of the E-Prix.
