...of the 2022 Diriyah E-Prix.


•    Both drivers benefited from winning FANBOOST thanks to DS TECHEETAH fans


•    The next round of Season 8 will take place in Mexico on the 12th of February




This Saturday for the second race of the 2022 Diriyah E-Prix, DS TECHEETAH scored some precious points. Starting from 6th and 7th place on the grid, Jean-Eric Vergne and Antonio Felix da Costa both made a great start at the wheel of their DS E-TENSE FE21.
 


Jean-Eric Vergne, driving the #25 DS E-TENSE FE21 fought hard to maintain his position in a very tight and competitive field. The race was interrupted by a Safety Car with 7:42 minutes remaining. The double Formula E champion took the chequered flag in 6th position offering 8 points to DS TECHEETAH.
 


Antonio Felix da Costa’s weekend was not what the team hoped for but with a 13th place finish during this second round of the Diriyah E-Prix, the Portuguese driver showed good pace and some precious information was collected for the remaining season.
 


The third E-Prix of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will take place on the 12th of February in Mexico City.




Thomas Chevaucher, DS Performance Director and DS TECHEETAH Team Principal: “
We are leaving Saudi with some points and lots of lessons learned. The new qualifying format changes significantly the philosophy of the championship and we will need to adapt ourselves to this new format.


Today’s race once again showed that our DS E-TENSE FE21 is fast but also how tight the competition is between the cars and drivers. The race in Mexico is in two weeks and we will come back fighting.”
 


Mark Preston TECHEETAH CEO
: “We certainly improved our pace today and we were very happy to have both drivers in the qualifying shootout. Antonio had a tough race and unfortunately finished out of the points. Like race 1 JEV battled incredibly hard and finished 6th. Now we move on to Mexico.”
 




Jean-Éric Vergne, driver of the #25 DS E-TENSE FE21:
“First weekend done, 8th and 6th. Obviously not what we wanted but in order to win the championship I think these races are very important to maximise the amount of points we can get.


We started with a good base, now we just need to improve this a little bit in order to fights for the win in Mexico. I’m very happy with the team and the work we produced. I’m now going back to Europe now to get ready for the next race and it will be a good one!”.
 



António Félix da Costa, driver of the #13 DS E-TENSE FE21:
“It was one of the hardest and character-building weekends I have had in a long time. I think it’s hard days and weekends like that that define a person. Obviously, we need to learn, understand and come back stronger.


 We had some difficulty with the car the last couple of days on a few areas which we know exactly where to improve so we will be ready for Mexico to fight back. It’s a weekend to make ourselves stronger, to learn for the rest of the season.”
