Jaguar driver Mitch Evans drove the race of the day to recover from a frustrating qualifying and just miss out on the podium at the Uruguay E-Prix on Saturday.
The Kiwi fought back valiantly to jump 12 positions from P16 to P4 as the Grove-based side impressed on a frustrating day in Punta del Este.
A rollercoaster qualifying session saw Evans show impressive pace, but was knocked back from P3 to P16 following a technical infringement.
But the 23-year-old ended up crossing the line less than two seconds behind third place.
He said: “It’s a little bit frustrating as we could have pushed the guys at the front if we started up there but it gives us confidence for the rest of the season.
“It was a sprint race and I enjoyed racing hard. Unfortunately not a podium but we’re looking forward to Rome and we’ll give it our best.”
In addition to Evans’ qualifying troubles, team-mate Nelson Piquet Jr, who crashed out of qualifying, was involved in an early-race collision and forced to retire.
But team director James Barclay praised Evans’ fight back as ‘phenomenal’, adding: “[It] shows that as a team we are capable of more for the rest of the season.”
Grove-based DS Virgin Racing driver Alex Lynn finished sixth.
The next E-Prix will be in Rome for the first time on April 14.
