António Félix da Costa (born 31 August 1991 in Lisbon, Portugal) is a Portuguese racing driver who will compete in the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E Championship for DS Techeetah as the reigning Champion, after claiming the 2019/20 Championship.[1][2] A serial FE race winner, da Costa has previously attempted to competed in Formula E alongside his DTM commitments for BMW, before leaving their factory FE squad ahead of his title winning campaign.[3]

From 2016/17, da Costa decided to focus entirely on Formula E, although it was a decision that backfired as the Portuguese racer only claimed one points finish all season, having switched to the Andretti Formula E squad for the third FE season.[4] Regardless, da Costa's BMW connections ensured that he was retained for the 2017/18 season by Andretti, leading the team for a second consecutive season.[5]

Unfortunately for da Costa 2017/18 would not be a particularly good season for either himself nor Andretti, with the only highlights being a couple of surprise appearances in Super Pole.[6] Yet, the Portuguese ace would be retained for BMW's debut season in 2018/19, remaining as lead driver as the German manufacturer partnered with the Andretti team.[3]

After a promising start to the 2018/19 season da Costa's challenge would fade mid-season, and with BMW withdrawing from the WEC at the end of the Portuguese ace opted to leave the team.[7] He subsequently joined 2018/19 Champions DS Techeetah in September 2019, partnering Jean-Éric Vergne, choosing #13 as his new race number.[2]

2019/20 proved to be da Costa's best FE season, with the Portuguese racer claiming three wins in a row during the middle of the season, including becoming the first driver in FE history to claim a Grand Slam.[8] That run put him 68 points clear at the head of the field, and ensured that he would win the Championship with two races to spare at the 2020 Berlin E-Prix IV, a new record.[9]

Background

Da Costa's career began in go-karts in the year 2000, becoming renowned in the sport for taking second in the World Series Karting Championship by 2006.[10] In 2008, da Costa was promoted to single seat racing, competing in Formula Renault, winning the series a year later.[10] He was rewarded with a test drive for Force India in Formula One, putting the car third on the time sheets in the young driver test of 2010.[10]

2012 saw da Costa take the Macau GP, a renowned Formula Three race around the streets of Macau.[10] He was spotted by Red Bull Racing , who signed da Costa to their young driver development programme, and named him as a test driver for the 2013 (and later 2014) Formula One season.[10] After winning the GP3 championship in 2013, da Costa entered the DTM Championship in 2014, while also competing in Formula E.[10]

Formula E History

Amlin Aguri decided to offer da Costa one of their two seats, opting to partner the Portuguese racer with Katherine Legge.[11] Da Costa would, however, miss the first ePrix of 2014 due to his DTM commitments, meaning Takuma Sato took his place in the team.[10] Yet, he would return for the 2014 Putrajaya ePrix, before taking his, and Amlin Aguri's, first Formula E victory at the 2015 Buenos Aires ePrix, surviving a chaotic race for the honours.[12]

da Costa became a consistent point scorer after that race, but was unable to return to the podium due to his notoriously poor qualifying record, while also receiving a new teammate in the form of Salvador Duran. With an average qualifying position outside of the top 15, da Costa's average race position of seventh demonstrated his ability in the Spark-Renault SRT_01E. After taking seventh in the 2015 Moscow ePrix, da Costa missed the season finale in London due to his DTM career, meaning Sakon Yamamoto took his seat.[13]

Best of the Rest

Due to budget constraints, newly renamed Team Aguri were forced to equip da Costa and new teammate Nathanaël Berthon with year old cars.[14] After a decent performance in the 2015 Donington Test, the Portuguese racer found himself almost instantly on the back foot, retiring from the season opening 2015 Beijing ePrix as Berthon claimed eighth.[15] Yet, da Costa's race winning resolve would re-emerge at the following two rounds, as he battled away with Frijns for a podium in Putrajaya.[16]

Berthon left the team before the turn of the year, allowing Duran to slot into the seat alongside da Costa.[17] Unfortunately, the change in teammate coincided with a down turn in form, with the Portuguese racer failing to score in the next three races, with two retirements down to driver error.[18] An eighth place in the 2016 Paris ePrix followed before da Costa missed the 2016 Berlin ePrix with René Rast replacing him.[19] da Costa would return for the season ending double header in London, with the Portuguese racer only managing to match his season best result of sixth in one of the two races.[20]

American Arms

With Team Aguri getting bought out by a Chinese media company, da Costa found himself without a drive for 2016/17 as the new Techeetah team announced their lineup as early as possible.[4] Fortunately for the Portuguese racer, a seat became available at MS Amlin Andretti, who had dropped Simona de Silvestro at the end of the season, with a deal signed in the weeks before the 2016 Donington Test.[4] It would be a productive test for the Portuguese racer, as he completed a lot of mileage in the new Andretti ATEC-02, while being on a par with new teammate Robin Frijns in terms of outright pace.

The season opening race would ultimately prove to be the highlight for da Costa in 2016/17, as he and Frijns fought all race long in Hong Kong for fifth.[21] Unfortunately for them, the ATEC-02 proved to be a difficult car to get pace out of over a single lap, and so da Costa and Frijns would have to start outside of the top ten in almost every ePrix from that point forward. Things would further run against da Costa in several race, the Portuguese racer retiring from the Marrakech, Mexico City and Paris ePrix through either mechanical strife or accident damage.[22]

Frijns would soon overhaul da Costa in the Championship standings, the Dutchman getting the better luck both technically and physically in several races. Other than his fifth place in Hong Kong, da Costa's best performances came in Buenos Aires, Monte Carolo and Berlin, having fought for points throughout each race, only to finish eleventh in every one.[23] Come seasons end, da Costa had just ten points to his name, less than half that of his teammate.

BMW Bounty

Fortunately for da Costa, the holders of his contract with Andretti, BMW decided to make the step into Formula E in 2018/19, and began to take over Andertti ahead of the 2017/18 season.[24] da Costa was therefore picked to lead the team into the new season, taking part in the 2017 Valencia Test as a benchmark for two other BMW contracted drivers: Tom Blomqvist and Alexander Sims.[5] It would ultimately prove to be da Costa who emerged as the fastest Andretti ace, although both da Costa and his testing teammates found themselves in the lower half of the timesheets.[25]

Yet, da Costa would start the season strongly, claiming sixth in the season opening race in Hong Kong, fighting in the points throughout.[26] However, a non-score would follow in the second race, followed by another pointless weekend in Marrakech.[27] The Portuguese ace then put in a strong performance in Santiago to score a ninth place finish, before making a surprise Super Pole appearance in Mexico City, only to have his times deleted.[6] He did, however, secure another point scoring result in seventh after a battling shuffle down the field.[6]

A poor run of races would follow for da Costa, the most harrowing of which for the Portuguese racer would be a retirement in Paris due to a brake failure having again made it Super Pole.[28] Indeed, da Costa would have to wait until the Zürich E-Prix to score again, inheriting eighth amid the late race chaos, before enduring another pointless weekend in New York.[29] Indeed, da Costa's last race of the season would see the Portuguese racer slapped with a penalty for pushing Luca Filippi into Jérôme d'Ambrosio, relegating him to the back of the field mid-race.[29]

Factory Fortitude

In spite of having another lacklustre campaign, BMW decided to retain da Costa as their lead driver as they made their full FE debut in 2018/19, with hopes of partnering the Portuguese racer with an established FE star.[3] BMW would, however, opt to promote Alexander Sims to the team from their WEC programme, with the pair impressing during the 2018 Valencia Test.[30] da Costa hence started the season as favourite with the Bavarian marque, and duly scored a comprehensive victory at the season opening 2018 Ad Diriyah E-Prix from pole position.[31]

However, things would take a turn for the worse for da Costa at the following round in Marrakech, with the Portuguese ace on course to win ahead of teammate Sims having battled to the front of the field.[32] However, in the closing stages of the race Sims would launch an attack on his teammate, which da Costa saw late and tried to defend, inevitably resulting in contact between the two.[32] da Costa was sent sliding into the barriers and out, while Sims limped through the rest of the race to claim fourth.[32]

The following race in Santiago would prove little better for da Costa, the Portuguese ace getting smacked in the back by André Lotterer and hence was forced to retire.[33] The 2019 Mexico City E-Prix saw da Costa's fortunes improve as he battled for victory late-on, although he would ultimately have to settle for second once Pascal Wehrlein was demoted for cutting a chicane.[34] Another difficult afternoon followed in Hong Kong, with da Costa salvaging a point, before he secured another podium finish at the 2019 Sanya E-Prix.[35]

Minor points finishes in Rome and Paris followed, before da Costa was disqualified from the 2019 Monaco E-Prix for using more power than permitted.[36] BMW's home race in Berlin saw da Costa claim fourth, having challenged for the lead through to the closing stages.[37] A pointless weekend in Bern followed, a result which left da Costa effectively out of the Championship hunt with two rounds to go.[38]

da Costa would battle to third in the opening New York City E-Prix, just missing out on second as Mitch Evans hit tyre trouble late on.[39] It was not, however, enough to keep da Costa mathematically in the hunt for the Championship, leaving him with little to race for in the Season Finale.[40] A poor qualifying result for the final race ultimately ensured that da Costa could only finish ninth, leaving him sixth in the Championship on 99 points.[40]

At the end of the 2018/19 season it was announced that da Costa would be leaving BMW, citing the cancellation of their WEC programme as a major factor.[7]

Techeetah Turn-Around

In September 2019, it was announced da Costa would be partnering reigning champion Jean-Éric Vergne at DS Techeetah for the 2019/20 season, thus marking da Costa's return to the outfit he had previously competed with when it was known as Team Aguri.[2]
