Pressure is coming on New Zealand's championship leader Nick Cassidy from several directions in Formula E after Round 14 of the series.

Porsche driver Antonio Felix da Costa claimed a second consecutive win in front of the passionate Portland fans and a third in-a-row.


Drivers standing leader Cassidy (Jaguar TCS Racing) failed to score any points in both events in the US while Mitch Evans and Pascal Wehrlein are now tied on points as we head into the London finale. 

Cassidy was down the table in 13th in the latest race.

Robin Frijns made it back-to-back podiums, a nice way to mark his 100th Formula E race, and the Dutchman was joined by Evans on the podium.

Cassidy’s nightmare Portland weekend did not get any better in race two. He topped the standings heading to the States and does stay there but an unforced error, which saw him spin out of the lead on the penultimate lap in Round 13 and contact in Round 14 saw him pointless.

That’s allowed Evans to draw to within 12 points of his teammate, level with Wehrlein in the Drivers’ table. Da Costa himself is just 33 back, with 58 still to play for at the double-header finale in London.

Rounds 15 and 16 follow on 20 and 21 July at London’s ExCeL centre in the historic Docklands district.
