FORMULA E DS TECHEETAH on the 3rd step of the podium

16 August, 2021

This year the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship has been the most competitive season in the history of the series. Despite the huge challenge, António Félix Da Costa and Jean-Éric Vergne fought at the front for the entire season. DS TECHEETAH finished on the third step of the Teams’ podium, with Da Costa and Vergne finishing 8th and 10th, respectively in the Drivers’ standings.

Round 14, 14 August 2021

On the Berlin-Tempelhof circuit, the two DS E-TENSE FE21s showed great potential on Saturday. Indeed, our two drivers took the second place in the "Teams" ranking, only 5 points behind the leader. The end of the race was difficult but they were still able to score points and close the gap in the championship.

Round 15, 15 August 2021

In Sunday's final race, unfortunately, the Portuguese driver was squeezed against the wall by a rival and had to retire, while Vergne crossed the line 11th, following contact in the very heated closing laps. Still, after 15 very intense races, where every single point has been fiercely fought, DS TECHEETAH finish at a very honorable third place in the Teams’ standings. 

After the most competitive season in Formula E, both from a technical and strategic point of view, DS TECHEETAH is happy to finish 3rd in the first ABB FIA Formula E World Championship together with DS automobiles. Now the objective is clear: to work hard to be back on the top of the podium as from next year. See you in 2022 for season 8 in Diriyah.
