New Zealand driver Nick Cassidy has won the Berlin E-Prix race nine, with fellow Kiwi Mitch Evans in fourth.

Cassidy produced a stunning comeback drive having slipped to 21st at the half-way stage, to take the chequered flag first and the race win Berlin E-Prix Round 9.

After starting ninth on the grid Cassidy came from nowhere to mount a late-race charge, having successfully navigated two spells under Safety Car conditions.

It wasn't easy for the Jaguar driver who gave plenty of credit to his team.

"That was crazy. It was tough. they (the team) were flawless all race I didn't have the car to win today, but we pulled it off," said the 29-year-old Aucklander.

Cassidy's winning progress came on Lap 43 where he pushed past Oliver Rowland and then slide past Jean-Eric Vergne later that same lap.

Vergne was eventually second with Rowland, who started on the grid in 15th third.

Race 10 is also in Berlin tomorrow morning.

Cassidy currently heads the season standings with Germany's Pascal Wehrlein second. Evans is fifth overall.
