New Zealander Nick Cassidy (Envision Racing), who started 9th on the grid, won the 6th Monaco E-Prix on Saturday, holding off his fellow Kiwi Mitch Evans (Jaguar TCS) and England’s Jake Dennis (Avalanche Andretti) until the end of a very exciting race.
This is the 2nd straight win for Cassidy this season, after the second race in Berlin last month. And the 3rd consecutive podium for Evans in Monaco, after a 3rd place in 2021 and a 2nd place in 2022. The Envision driver takes the lead in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
After a disappointing qualifying session, Cassidy took a great start, then passed Evans at the right time and never gave in to the Jaguar driver’s pressure. The race ended in slow motion, behind the Safety Car, following a collision at Sainte Devote between Sam Bird, the other Jaguar driver, and Nico Müller (ABT Cupra).
