Either being a fan or not of EVs, giving the highly space for debate and discussion of sustainability for instance, the market is speaking right now… and it wants more and more (as usual if one has a desirable perception / satisfaction) EV’s. With it came along some triggers and opinion modifiers that usually help to shape and support how one can perceive a certain subject. Formula E is probably one these. Surely its not only about a Race, but rather a particular one (where also a community can directly participate!). However, neither of the intentions would make sense if the big OEMs weren’t involved, Brand such as Jaguar, Nissan, Audi, BMW (and other) have joined this “club”.
As a new revolution era takes place, new materials are in R&D and of course new ways to spread the message and reach the end consumer are also on the way;
In this process there’s a Portuguese that is leading right now the E – Fomula Championship. So congrats in Advance A. Felix da Costa.


Heres a glance:
With four seasons of all-electric single seater racing under his belt, da Costa is one of the most experienced Formula E drivers on the grid.

Starting his career in the series as a driver for Team Aguri in 2014, where he raced for two seasons, da Costa secured an early win in Buenos Aires, Season 1. Since then, however, the top step of the podium has proved elusive for the Portuguese driver.

In Season 3, da Costa moved to Andretti where he raced for the all-American outfit for two seasons, benefiting from the team's technical partnership with BMW in 2017/18. In Season 5, Andretti's technical partnership with the German marque blossomed into a full manufacturer works team, taking the name of BMW i Andretti Motorsport, with da Costa and teammate Alexander Sims announced as the team's debut driver line up.

Coming from a racing family, da Costa started karting at the age of nine racing in a number of Portuguese championships against more experienced and older competitors. In 2007, he progressed into single-seaters in Formula Renault 2.0 and, after gaining attention in both Formula 3 Euro Series and GP3, he would eventually join the Red Bull programme. After making his Formula 1 test debut for Force India in 2010, the Portuguese driver went on to pilot four of Adrian Newey's title-winning Red Bull Racing machines.
Having raced for the German car giant previously in the DTM, da Costa continues to drive for the marque in the World Endurance Championship, alongside his Formula E commitments.
