Mitch Evans and the New Zealand Grand Prix
About a year ago, we wrote about Toyota Racing Series and the New Zealand Grand Prix in
those antipodean thoughts. Yesterday, Mitch Evans became the youngest driver to win the
New Zealand Grand Prix, increasing during the weekend the overwhelming gap between him
and the others in the championship.
Mark Webber’s protégé is therefore really close to the title, and, to tell the truth, it is almost
impossible to catch him up right now. Evans mastered the championship, but he is the
reigning champion in Toyota Racing Series. European drivers could not do anything, even
Earl Bamber could not, despite the fact that he was his only opponent last year during the
season. Twelve races, twelve podiums, six victories – neither Scott Pye, winner in British
Formula Ford 2010, nor Nick Cassidy were a worry for Evans. Red Bull’s Russians wealthy
protégés such as Daniil Kvyat, or Lukoil’s such as Ivan Lukashevich started chasing him too
So what next for this new New-Zealander phenomenon? Some people think of a revenge to be
taken in Australian F3, where he lost the title for one point to Ben Barker in 2010. Others talk
about a GP3 programme with MW Arden. Let’s be careful, however, not to make him climb
the ladder too quickly, for other drivers that were as promising, if more, as he is already
singed their wings. And let’s not forget the eternal issue of budget, too.
