Formula E is to return to Monaco this weekend for the ninth race of the 2023 season. The last round, Berlin’s double-header, yielded two winners united by their nationality and a long history of racing together going back two decades.
New Zealanders, Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy, took winner’s laurels for rounds seven and eight respectively, with Mitch making that two wins on the bounce (after Brazil) and Nick adding to a strong run of form so far this season, which included a Kiwi one-two alongside Mitch in Sao Paulo.
Together in their Jaguar-powered machinery – Evans in the Jaguar and Cassidy in the Jag customer Envision – they also kept championship protagonists Porsche from winning their home round. We got to chat with both about their top-step lockout in Berlin and Brazil, Monaco expectations, reflections on the dramatically different Gen3 car so far and championship prospects.
