‘Copy, paste’ strategy for Evans as title fight goes down to the wire in Seoul

With just 21 points separating Jaguar TCS Racing’s Mitch Evans from championship leader and Mercedes-EQ driver Stoffel Vandoorne, once again, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship goes down to the wire in Seoul as the battle to be crowned Season 8 Champion rages on to the final. For underdog Evans, the Kiwi’s aiming for a ‘copy and paste’ after winning Round 15 in the Korean capital.

“Copy and paste, I guess,” said Mitch Evans casually, when asked about his race strategy for the final in the post-race press conference, moments after winning Round 15. Starting third after a solid qualifying performance, the Jaguar driver closed the gap on his main rival Vandoorne to just 21 points, with a critical victory that keeps him in contention for the Drivers’ title.

“Obviously getting pole would be would be helpful but obviously, I need to win the race and for [Vandoorne] to finish outside of the points, so we need some luck.

“As you saw today, you know we are able to do it. Vandoorne obviously had a strong race as well, and he and Mercedes cars are working really well out here. So it’s going to be a really tricky day and – as is the way in Formula E – anything can happen but we won’t go down without a fight. So it’s it’s all in tomorrow, have a bit of fun and hopefully a big result. ”
