Formula E: Cassidy leads Jaguar 1-2 in wet London e-Prix

Nick Cassidy led a 1-2 for Jaguar’s Envision Racing amid ultra-tricky, wet conditions in a delay-hit Hankook London E-Prix.

Cassidy led lights-to-flag for a fourth win of the season to help ensure his outfit secured maiden Teams’ World Championship honors.

After delays for the wet weather to recede to allow a safe race to take place, Cassidy composed himself to stride to a comfortable race win – heading home fellow New Zealander Mitch Evans and new champion Jake Dennis (Avalanche Andretti) to deliver the Teams’ crown the way of Jaguar customers Envision Racing, ahead of the factory Jaguar TCS Racing squad.

Cassidy led from pole, lights-to-flag and set the TAG Heuer Fastest Lap of the race, keeping Evans at arm’s length throughout, while the lead pair drew out some 10 seconds over next-best Dennis with conditions as tough as it gets. Not only did the Envision Racing-run Jaguar I-TYPE 6 have the pace advantage but it also looked better on energy, too. That result left Cassidy as runner-up in the Drivers’ table.

This allowed Sebastien Buemi in the sister Envision to steer to sixth, fending off Sam Bird in the other Jaguar TCS Racing car to make doubly sure of Teams’ honors.

Norman Nato (Nissan) and outgoing champion Stoffel Vandoorne (DS PENKSE) were sandwiched between the front three and the squabbling Buemi and Bird, while Nico Mueller (ABT CUPRA) finished eighth.

Dan Ticktum, on home soil in the NIO 333, made a smart early move on Maserati MSG Racing’s Edo Mortara to break into the top 10 and steered to an eventual ninth, ahead of TAG Heuer Porsche’s Pascal Wehrlein.

That final round of Season 9 left Envision Racing the Teams’ World Champions – their first title, with a prior best of third. They beat out the factory Jaguar TCS Racing team by 12 points. Porsche customers Avalanche Andretti also edged the factory TAG Heuer Porsche team to third, by 10 points.

Dennis wound up 30 points clear of Cassidy in the Drivers’ running, with Evans third and Wehrlein fourth.
