Back-to-back podiums has leapt Mitch Evans up to fourth in the Formula E championship with one race remaining.
Third place in last night’s weekend opener in Berlin follows Evans’ third place finish at London a fortnight earlier.
Now just five points behind leader Nyck de Vries, the Kiwi is a prime spot to snatch a first series title tomorrow morning NZT.
“We’re in a good place for tomorrow but we take nothing for granted,” Evans said.
The final race of the weekend is again held on the reverse circuit layout that was first used last year.
Evans is also promoted to group one of qualifying, which means he will have to deal with the worst track conditions during the session.
However, the Kiwi is up for the challenge and suggests his experience will come in handy for tomorrow’s race.
“We need to focus on the reverse layout, look at the challenges of group one and do the best we can to maximise the points.
“I don’t know what they’re gonna do to clean [the track] up, hopefully they do something because it was getting pretty bad towards the end.
“Guys like us who had done it last year might have a bit of an advantage over, maybe, the rookie guys but Jake [Dennis] didn’t exactly struggle on this layout.
“So I think that tomorrow it’ll be the same, it’s just more making the right steps.”
Fourteen drivers are mathematically in the hunt to win the championship, and Evans is aware that anything can happen.
“Tomorrow’s the one that counts,” he said.
“It’s going to swing up and down every lap, probably, tomorrow.
“So we need to capitalise on a big day; Sam [Bird] is, I think, back in group two so we’ve got scope to have another good day, but it’s 24 hours from now when it counts.
“We’ll trudge on, tune her up, hopefully get some more pace out of it and then go again.”
Last year, Mitch’s brother Simon Evans won the Jaguar I-Pace championship at Berlin in the final race of the year.
The Formula E finale will begin at 1.30 am NZT.
