Carroll's Jaguar lacking bite with team rooted to bottom

By Sammy Hamill

There was more disappointment for Adam Carroll and Jaguar in round three of the FIA Formula E series in Buenos Aires.

The Portadown driver finished 17th, a lap down on winner Sebastien Buemi, and New Zealand team-mate Mitch Evans was 13th.

So for the third race in succession the new Jaguar team failed to score a point and they remain bottom of the standings in the all-electric championship.

Evans did produce the team's best qualifying performance so far, setting seventh fastest time, but Carroll again struggled and started from the eighth row of the grid.

Evans ran in the top 10 for most of the race through the streets of the Argentinian capital but dropped back in the latter stages

Carroll had "technical issues" early in the race and fell a lap behind but set competitive times in the second half.

It was Buemi's third successive win for the Renault-e.Dams team.

Jean-Eric Vergne was in second place with Lucas di Grassi third.

The next round is in Mexico City on April 1.
