Nick Cassidy wins in Formula E in Saudi Arabia
Nick Cassidy of Jaguar TCS Racing claimed his first victory of Season 10 in Diriyah, marking his 50th Formula E race with a confident win and becoming the only driver to podium in all three races so far this season in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
Cassidy started in third and maintained pace with leaders Robin Frijns (Envision Racing) and Oliver Rowland (Nissan Formula E Team), who began in Julius Bär Pole Position. Cassidy’s tactical approach paid off as he navigated through the first round of ATTACK MODE activations, seizing the lead.
Once in front, Cassidy managed a 2.5-second lead, executing his second mandatory 50kW ATTACK MODE boost with precision. Despite the relentless pursuit by Frijns and Rowland, who trailed less than a second behind in the race’s final stages, Cassidy maintained his lead, crossing the finish line with confidence.
“This is awesome I mean it’s such a dream. I’ve got an amazing car and I’m so privileged but this here… I mean – I want it that way,” said Cassidy.
“Every win is special, it’s just been a dream start. I’m waiting for a bad day, it’s gonna come but for now we ride, we ride.
“I took advantage at the start – I initially thought I went too hard at the start – but, you know, Jaguar TCS Racing gave me an amazing car and I’m super lucky.”
Cassidy’s victory propels him to an 18-point lead in the Drivers’ World Championship, with Jaguar TCS Racing securing a significant lead in the Teams’ standings. The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship moves next to Sao Paulo for Round 4 on 16th March, where the electric excitement continues.
