Evans defends dejected Cassidy after 'quite clear' Vergne incident

Mitch Evans' frustrations with the stewards "completely wrong" approach continued at the inaugural Misano E-Prix on Saturday, after Nick Cassidy's race was "ruined" by Jean-Eric Vergne.

On the fifth lap of what was the latest extreme peloton race, Cassidy made contact with the wall at Turn 9, after colliding with Vergne. The FIA judged that Vergne "caused a collision" and was given a five-second time penalty, which he labelled as the "most unfair" of his career.
