GREAT PACE DESPITE CHALLENGES FOR DS TECHEETAH IN DIRIYAH

Paris, 25 November 2019

DS TECHEETAH had another tough day in Diriyah, with a podium in sight for Antonio Felix Da Costa before a drive through penalty saw him finish in P10. Team-mate Jean-Éric Vergne had to change his battery following a crash earlier in the morning, forcing him to start at the back of the grid, he eventually finished P8.

Xavier Mestelan Pinon, DS Performance Director: “This result today is certainly far from our goal. It's even one of the toughest scenarios we could imagine. Nevertheless, there are two things to take from the start of this championship, our drivers showed that we have a very good car in qualifying as well as in the race, which will allow us to target victories. But for that, we will have to avoid making any further mistakes - this will be our top priority in Santiago.”
