Cassidy slices through pack to take ABB Driver of Progress in Tokyo

Nick Cassidy lost the lead of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in the inaugural Tokyo E-Prix, yet the Jaguar TCS Racing driver also limited the damage admirably with a stirring recovery drive that earned him the ABB Driver of Progress Award with 12 moves. He picked his moments well and a mid-race surge left him well placed to benefit as others without the same kind of restraint ran into trouble (and each other). As a case in point, Cassidy gained just two places from his starting position across the first 15 laps of the E-Prix. He ran no higher than 16th in the first half of the race or so, but that was partly due to playing a waiting game and partly due to using both his ATTACK MODE activations relatively early.
