Da Costa puts DS Techeetah on pole!

Published on 08 May 2021

Portuguese defending Formula E champion Antonio Félix da Costa will start on pole for the 4th Monaco E-Prix, Saturday at 16 :03, after achieving an almost perfect lap in 1:31.317 during the Super Pole session, three hours before the start of the 7th leg of the 2021 season.

Da Costa had already started on pole this season, for Race 1 in Valencia last month. He was only 12/1000th faster than Dutchman Robin Frijns. On the second row, Mitch Evans’s Jaguar will start next to another DS Techeetah driven by Jean-Eric Vergne, the winner in 2019 here and double Formula E FIA champion.

The leader of the World Championship, Nyck de Vries (Mercedes), had a terrible qualifying session and will start in 23rd place, at the back of the grid.
