Jaguar’s Mitch Evans set the pace in practice for the opening round of the 2017/18 Formula E season in Hong Kong.
After finishing its debut FE season last of the 10 teams in the championship, Jaguar predicted a significant step forward for the coming campaign.
Evans fired an early indicator of its progress with the second-fastest time in opening practice, albeit 0.466s off Sebastien Buemi’s pace in a session that featured few full-power efforts.
In FP2, Evans improved considerably as the chequered flag dropped in his I-type 2 to post a 1m02.875s – the only driver to dip below the 1m13s barrier.
