This Sunday, a circuit race took place in Switzerland for the first time since 1954. The ABB FIA Formula E Championship paid a visit to the streets of Zurich. In the tenth race of the season, António Félix da Costa (POR) added to the points tally for his MS&AD Andretti Formula E team.
At the Julius Baer Zurich E-Prix in the heart of this great Swiss city, Félix da Costa moved up six positions during the race to cross the line in eighth place. His team-mate Stéphane Sarrazin (FRA) finished in 14th position. Victory in the Julius Baer Zurich E-Prix went to Lucas di Grassi (BRA, Audi). The two remaining races of the season will take place on 14th and 15th July in New York.
Reactions to the Julius Baer Zurich E-Prix.
António Félix da Costa (#28 Andretti ATEC-003):
“I qualified 14th and then had a really clean race. I hit all my targets, hit all my numbers and we managed to be P8 and score some points again in the end, which is good. It’s been a solid day and I’m looking forward to the last races of the season. It’s been a long year, it’s been tough but the last one is in New York. We are looking forward to going to MS&AD Andretti’s home races and ending on a high note there.”
Stéphane Sarrazin (#27 Andretti ATEC-003):
“It was quite difficult with the energy management. I lost a bit fighting with other cars in the first stint and also a bit in the second stint but I need to understand and improve myself. The system in this car is not easy. António has had three years to perfect the car and he’s using the energy perfectly but me – I need to improve myself on energy. The MS&AD Andretti team will work hard and return stronger in New York.”
