Jaguar Racing’s Sam Bird had a fairy tale of New York on Sunday as the Englishman took a lights to flag victory in race 2 of the ABB FIA Formula E doubleheader New York City ePrix race 2 on Sunday. Bird was joined on the front row by his teammate Mitch Evans making history in the process becoming the first driver to win three times at the same track.

The win also sees Bird take the lead in the drivers championship and speaking following the race he commented saying:

“You’re never giving up, always pushing with the team, always believing in yourself, believing in the equipment underneath here, and just executing the plan. And we did that. Just absolutely perfect today. So proud of everybody.”

New Zealand’s Nick Cassidy had a great race for the Envision Virgin Racing team as he came home 4.167s behind Bird in second place and speaking following the race he commented saying:

“The team has been working incredibly hard all year, in the factory and at the track. The hours they put in are second to none. In this championship, it’s just really tough and I’ve had the luxury of being in group 3, group 4. Under no illusions, I’m just happy how things are coming together and the work we are doing there”

DS Techeetah’s Antonio Feliz Da Costa who has been tipped to make his NTT IndyCar Series race debut with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing later this season completed the podium in third place and speaking following the race he said:

“I’m really happy that we put in the hours of work last night before going home. The guys, all the engineers and mechanics made sure we were a little bit better today. You know, we qualified 7th, the car was amazing and we were able to come through the field. I felt like I was really strong but as soon as I got super close to the car in front, I struggled a little bit with energy”
