Antonio Felix Da Costa won an exciting Marrakesh E-Prix to go top in the Formula E championship’s standings. The Portuguese driver is the fifth different winner in the first five races of the season.
Da Costa, who drives for DS Techeetah, had finished second in the previous two races of the season in Chile and Mexico but led from pole here to claim victory by the third-biggest winning margin in the sport’s history – 11.43 seconds.
Most of the drama happened behind him, however. A sensational battle for the other podium places saw German driver Maximilian Gunther overtake Da Costa’s team-mate Jean-Eric Vergne moments before the final corner to claim second place.
