The analysis undertaken on one of the wishbones taken from Mitch Evans’ Rome E-Prix-winning Jaguar has been completed and cleared by the FIA.

The component was taken and sealed by the FIA technical team after the race last Saturday and sent to the FIA headquarters in Geneva for checks.

While the final race results were issued last Saturday evening, they were noted as pending for additional technical checks to the No. 20 Jaguar I-Type 3 driven by Evans to victory.

E-racing365 understands that the dimension testing was carried out on Monday and the team was informed immediately.

The full and final bulletin issued by the FIA and signed by technical delegate Laurent Arnaud read:

“The Bare wishbone/arm #2, dismounted and sealed following the Rome Formula E Race (item 11.2-46 of the homologation form FE_Jaguar_Jaguar I-Type 3_18-03-BASE), was checked in reference with the wishbone/arm element sealed at the homologation, during the bulking load test.

“When to the measurements checks were conducted, the sealed race part was found in compliance with the original sealed part and with the Regulations of the Championship.”

The FIA reserves the right to submit sealed components for testing away from a circuit at any time. It completed tests on dampers from podium achieving cars on several occasions in recent seasons.

Notably Jean-Eric Vergne’s Paris E-Prix-winning car last April underwent checks, as did Jerome d’Ambrosio’s Penske EV-2 which took third place in the inaugural Zurich E-Prix in June..
