Antonio Felix da Costa: ‘frustrating’ Marrakesh ePrix ‘hard to swallow’

Antonio Felix da Costa was forced to change cars early, and his only hope of points with the fastest lap of the race were scuppered at the last by Loic Duval

“We had a good start to the race and gained a position straightaway,” said da Costa after the race.

“I was feeling good in the car and we had very good energy management; we were running in the top 10 and looking good to get a few more places. Then we had a technical issue with the car and we stropped on track.”

“That was the end of the race for us, really. We came in and jumped into the other car with the goal of going for the Fastest Lap, which we held until a lap or two from the end.”

“It’s frustrating because it has been a month of hard work for the MS Amlin Andretti team and to die right there is hard to swallow. We need to regroup and get everyone motivated to go again in Buenos Aires.”

The Buenos Aires ePrix is on the 18th February 2017
