Mitch Evans won Saturday’s Shanghai E-Prix after a last-lap overtake on Porsche’s Pascal Wehrlein to secure victory in China. 

In another heavy energy-saving race, Evans had to wait patiently to attack Wehrlein who decided to lead the majority of the E-Prix.

Evans took the lead with five laps to go and bolted, but Wehrlein managed to overtake the Jaguar driver again at Turn 11 despite cutting the track while completing the move.

Then Evans had to wait patiently in the closing three laps, but the Kiwi dived to the outside of Turn 1 and was able to complete the move and drive to the chequered flag to take his second victory of the season.

The Jaguar driver is under investigation though for leaving the track and gaining an advantage, as well as Antonio Felix Da Costa.

Wehrlein came home in second after surviving a late scare from Nick Cassidy. Cassidy did stick his front wing down the inside of Turn 11, but Wehrlein provided a robust defence to keep second.

Cassidy came home in third, but the Jaguar driver had the most amount of energy left in the closing stages of the race, but the team told him to hold position behind Evans when he was in second.

Oliver Rowland came home in fourth after starting the race in second place. The Brit dropped back during the race but clawed his way back to secure 12 championship points.

Da Costa was fifth in the second Porsche ahead of Andretti’s Jake Dennis who ended the race in sixth.

Pole-sitter Jean-Eric Vergne came home in seventh for DS Penske. The double Formula E Champion finished ahead of Nyck De Vries who powered his way to the front of the field at the start of the race.

The Mahindra driver ended the race in eighth place and picked up his first points of the season.

Sebastien Buemi secured ninth place after Maximilian Gunther picked up a ten-second penalty for causing a collision with Edoardo Mortara. Mortara failed to finish the race due to the collision.

Stoffel Vandoorne picked up the final point for DS Penske. Luca Di Grassi ended the race in 11th for ABT Cupra ahead of Sacha Fenestraz and Robin Frijns.
