Nick Cassidy ended the 2023 Formula E season with a bittersweet moment as he won the London E-Prix to deliver the teams championship to Envision.
With the drivers championship wrapped up by Jake Dennis on Saturday, Envision and Jaguar were level on points going into Sunday before Cassidy opened up a three-point gap with pole position.
The Kiwi then led his fellow countryman and soon to be teammate, Jaguar driver Evans across the line to end the 2023 campaign.
Race 2 at the London-E-Prix started under the safety car, running for five laps, before being red flagged due to an extremely wet track.
The race finally got underway over one hour after the scheduled start time, with Cassidy and Evans racing away from the rest of the Formula E field with incidents few and far between.
After being cruelly taken out of Saturday’s London E-Prix by Envision teammate Sebastien Buemi, Cassidy showed remarkable mental fortitude to put in a dominant performance on Sunday.
Cassidy to Jaguar
The 2023 London E-Prix was Cassidy’s final race for the Envision team before he moves to Jaguar for the 2024 Formula E season.
Cassidy’s relationship between himself and the team appears broken after the incident with Buemi, and prior to his final race he said he ‘learned who is friends are’.
Now, he will be alongside his fellow New Zealander at Jaguar to form the most fearsome pairing on the Formula E grid.
