Nelson Piquet Jnr endured a dramatic crash in the fourth race of the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E season in Mexico City but stepped out his Jaguar I-PACE 3 unharmed. Mitch Evans brought his racecar over the line in seventh for a six-point finish for Panasonic Jaguar Racing.
Piquet Jnr achieved the fastest first sector of any driver in qualifying but couldn’t convert to Super Pole – he started the race in P11 and Evans in P17 after inheriting a place from Robin Frijns’ penalty.
Piquet Jnr was fighting for eighth position into turn 14 when a collision with Jean-Éric Vergne’s back wheel sent the Brazilian driver over the top of his car in one of the biggest collisions in Formula E. Despite serious damage to the car, Piquet Jnr emerged from the crash unharmed.
Evans showed fantastic form, climbing an impressive ten places to finish seventh and secure six points for Panasonic Jaguar Racing – his fourth consecutive points-finish this season.
