Nick Cassidy and Mitch Evans have finished the first Formula E race of the season in the top ten.
After early drama, Cassidy recovered to finish seventh, while Evans clawed his way into the top ten after a difficult qualifying session, that saw him make contact with the wall and get impeded during the session, pushing him out of the next round of qualifying.
Cassidy found drama early running wide with teammate Robin Frijns at the start of the first lap, dropping Cassidy to eighth, after starting from, sixth on the grid.
The Safety car made an early appearance after contact between Oliver Rowland and Robin Frijns, saw Rowland spin backwards into the wall. Frijns would later receive a drive-through penalty for contact.
Just before the Safety car was brought out both Kiwi drivers made ground, Cassidy moving up to seventh, while Evans moved into 11th.
Evans spent much of the second half of the race in a battle with Jean-Eric Vergne, the pair trading eighth and ninth a number of times, with the Kiwi receiving the Fan boost, which he put to use attempting to put a move on Vergne, which saw him run wide defending the position, ultimately keeping Evans behind him for another lap, before the pair continued trading positions.
However, Evans dropped to tenth on the final lap of the race.
Late in the race, Cassidy also found himself in a battle pack, after he caught the back of the three-car pack fighting for fourth back. The Kiwi was able to move forward briefly moving up to sixth, before dropping back to seventh, though he also took the fastest lap of the race, giving him an extra point in the championship.
The field will be back on track tomorrow morning for another race, with coverage starting at 5.30 am.
