“I’m very happy to be back with the MS&AD Andretti Team for Season 4,” said António Felix da Costa. “I believe with another small push from BMW and our partners, we have the strength to fight for some good results. I can’t wait for Hong Kong.”
Félix da Costa has been active in Formula E since the first season in 2014/15 and was one of the first winners in the series when he claimed victory in the Buenos Aires ePrix in Season 1. He will contest his second season for MS&AD Andretti, which is new name for the Andretti Formula E team, in 2017/18. Even though Félix da Costa is only 26 years old, he is one of the most experienced Formula E drivers. He has already enjoyed success on the highly competitive DTM stage – his maiden win in Zandvoort in 2015 was the highlight for Félix da Costa. In addition to his victories in Formula E and the DTM, he has won the renowned Macau Grand Prix for Formula 3 racing cars twice.
Félix da Costa is currently taking part in official test drives for Formula E in Valencia. He is joined by the two BMW works drivers Tom Blomqvist and Alexander Sims. Further details on the full driver line-up of MS&AD Andretti will be announced at a later time.
