Da Costa takes imperious win amid draining Berlin drama

DS Techeetah’s Antonio Felix da Costa, sealed an imperious race win in the Berlin E-Prix presented by CBMM Niobium Round 6, securing a maximum 30-point score as well as the qualifying benchmark, Super Pole, a lights-to-flag victory and fastest lap in the process. The Portuguese driver was able to fly over the line with a precisely-measured 0.0 percent of his available energy remaining ahead of TAG Heuer Porsche driver Andre Lotterer and Envision Virgin Racing man Sam Bird. The Mercedes driver made use of the extra 35 kW boost and Lotterer was made to pay for missing the activation point by the Dutchman, who made a move for third stick on lap 18. Lotterer came home second, some 5.5 seconds back, whilst Bird, de Vries, D’Ambrosio and Vandoorne rounded out the top six. I wanted to put myself in a position to win races in my career and it’s happening.”.
