Panasonic Jaguar Racing recorded their second consecutive points finish in today's FIA Formula E Monaco ePrix.

Kiwi Mitch Evans and Adam Carroll survived a testing battle throughout the race to finish in P10 and P14, scoring another valuable championship point for the British team. Jaguar remains P9 in the team standings.

Racing in the Mediterranean Principality, Evans and Carroll succeeded in bringing both cars home through an action-packed race, recording the team's second consecutive top ten finish in only the fifth race since Jaguar retuned to international racing.

The pair of Jaguar I-TYPEs lined up on the grid with Evans and Carroll in P15 and P18 respectively, with an aggressive race strategy to make the most of what was anticipated to be a feisty first stint on the famously challenging street circuit.

Towards the halfway point of the race, the team took an opportunistic strategy call. Following a competitor collision on track, Panasonic Jaguar Racing reacted instantly to the incident, calling both drivers in early to complete their mandatory pit stops.

The safety car was only deployed as the Jaguar duo had entered the pitlane, meaning that New Zealand's Evans re-joined the action directly behind the safety car, one lap down from the drivers who pitted later. He was eventually waved past the safety car but had to use valuable energy to re-join the pack, which impacted on his ability to push towards the end of the race.

However the team were rewarded with another top ten finish for Evans and more valuable data for Carroll who brought the Jaguar I-TYPE home in P14.

"I really love racing in Monaco," said Evans. "We made up some places in the race and came away again with valuable points for the second race in a row - we are making solid progress.

"It's great to drive for a team that isn't afraid to take advantage of opportunities when they occur. I think it shows real racing spirit. We are making important gains in many areas and I want to play my part in continuing that momentum now."
