Mitch Evans brought a damaged car home third in the London E-Prix to give Jaguar its first podium on home soil in 30 years.
The Kiwi had been point-less in three races, including a dismal weekend opener yesterday where he finished 14th.
However, Evans made up for his woes with a relentless drive to finish third in a wild second race in London.
“I’m so happy to be on the podium today for Jaguar – a British team on home soil,” Evans said.
“I really needed these points today and it puts me back into the championship fight.”
Firstly, Evans clattered with BMW Andretti driver Maximillian Gunther, which damaged his front wing.
He then missed one of the attack modes, costing him valuable time.
Yet despite all that, Evans pulled off a cunning move on Robin Frijns with less than ten minutes remaining to move into fourth.
Evans was then elevated to the podium following a bizarre disqualification for race leader Lucas di Grassi.
Di Grassi looked to have pulled off an ingenious play of gamesmanship when he came into the pits under the safety car.
The nature of the London street circuit meant the pitlane was shorter than the track.
So, when di Grassi exited the pits, he had jumped from tenth into the lead.
However, race officials deemed the Audi driver did not stop in front of his pit box, as per the rules.
He was dealt a drive-through penalty, which he did not take and he was shown the black flag on the penultimate lap.
Whether di Grassi did stop or not remains a contentious topic, with Audi adamant that he did stop and the play was fair.
Though had he won the race, debate would run rife over whether it was a proper win or one a looted off a loophole in the regulations.
The race was won by Alex Lynn, with Nyck de Vries finishing ahead of Evans to take second.
Nick Cassidy rebounded after a scoreless race yesterday to finish seventh in this morning’s fixture.
Both Evans and Cassidy are still mathematically in the hunt for the championship with two races remaining.
Those two races will be at the Berlin Tempelhof circuit on August 14-15.
