Jaguar Racing’s Sam Bird soars to Round 2 victory at Diriyah

Sam Bird took victory at his debut event with Jaguar Racing in Round 2 of the season-opening Diriyah double header, heading home Robin Frijns (Envision Virgin Racing) with DS TECHEETAH’s Jean-Eric Vergne third. Sam Bird (Jaguar Racing) got the better of Robin Frijns (Envision Virgin Racing) – his former teammate – as the two engaged in a race-long back and forth under the floodlights. It didn’t work out at all nicely for the experienced Formula E racer, though, with Bird also temporarily losing third spot to Sette Camara allowing Frijns to pull out a two-second gap on Lap 14. On Lap 22, Bird did make that move at Turn 18 stick, while the two DS’ came to blows at Turn 21. Two laps later, Bird headed Frijns by 0.8 seconds and held onto that advantage through his second ATTACK MODE activation.
