Vergne: ‘I’ll definitely help Antonio if I can. We need to produce a clever race’

Both standings leader Antonio Felix da Costa and team-mate Jean-Eric Vergne plan to play the team game heading into Round 9 as the Portuguese driver bids to seal the Drivers’ title and the Sino-French squad the Teams’ Championship. WATCH: Don’t miss a minute of Round 9 from Berlin

Vergne will treat da Costa as he would expect to be treated himself if he were in the Portuguese driver’s shoes – needing to finish the day 60 points clear of the next-best in the standings to seal the title. “I will definitely help him if I can and more importantly, help the team with the Teams’ Championship. I would expect exactly the same if the roles were reversed.”

DS Techeetah currently sits 74 points clear of BMW i Andretti Motorsport in the Teams’ table with 96 available after Round 9.
