Jaguar celebrated a double point-scoring weekend for the first time this season after both drivers finished in the top 10 at a dramatic Santiago E-Prix.
With hard-fought, wheel-to-wheel action from the front of the race, Mitch Evans made swift progress up the grid.
The New Zealander elbowed his way through the pack from P20 to cross the line at the inaugural Santiago E-Prix in seventh place.
Team-mate Nelson Piquet Jr, starting fifth on the grid, made a lightning start and battled for the lead throughout but had to settle for a sixth-placed finish.
The double points finish continued the Grove-based outfit’s strong start to their second season in Formula E.
Evans said he was “very happy” to claim six points after fighting back from a disappointing qualifying.
“The important thing is that the Jaguar has the pace, as a team we are still learning but getting better all the time,” added Piquet Jr, who scooped eight points in Chile.
Jaguar are fourth in the team standings with 54 points – the highest tally the team have ever achieved. Piquet Jr is fifth and Evans is seventh in the drivers’ championship.
Grove-based driver Alex Lynn said he was happy with his team’s – DS Virgin Racing – performance despite having to retire after losing a battle with his gearbox.
