How an overlooked F1 talent found his true calling
Formula E's six-race Berlin finale was billed as the most intense in motorsport history, and expected to go down to the wire in true FE style. But it was decided two races early, for the first time ever, as one driver showed his F1 rejection hadn't defined him
Whatever Antonio Felix da Costa does for the rest of his career, even in retirement - if he's ever called upon to open a local supermarket or switch on the Christmas lights - he will now always be introduced as a Formula E champion.
In the five previous seasons of FE, no one had ever won the title with two rounds to spare, but da Costa did. A trio of consecutive pole positions preceded three largely unchallenged victories, split across Marrakech and in Berlin last week. That's a fine return for a driver who was overlooked by Formula 1 and whose junior career was typified by the word 'nearly'.
Another Formula E double-header, another double dose of frantic action. While the form guide remains unpredictable following fightback wins for Jean-Eric Vergne and Stoffel Vandoorne in Rome, the speed and consistency of Mercedes – both on and off the track – could have its rivals worried for what is to follow
Formula E's Gen3 era grid continues to take shape, after Nissan opted to commit to the series for another four years. Nissan's global chief operating officer explains why it has thrown its lot in with FE while other high-profile marques have decided to call it quits.

The delayed 2020-21 Formula E season gets underway this week with a double-header in Saudi Arabia. The testing times were too close to call a favourite, but that's not the only area of interest to follow as the championship enters a crucial year
As off-track politics threatens to overshadow events on it, the upcoming Formula E season is perhaps its most important since the championship's inception. And that's a shame, given that the focus should be on what promises to be its closest title fight yet.
Mercedes and Porsche compete to win and have done so across the board: in Formula 1, sportscars, the Dakar Rally and endurance road races - even working together to break land speed records. Next in the crosshairs is the Formula E teams' championship crown.
News that McLaren is formally considering a Formula E move is a much-needed boost for a series that took some punches at the end of 2020. But to allay any doubts that Zak Brown may have, FE must take action on its biggest potential stumbling block
BMW and Audi shocked the Formula E fraternity by announcing their departures at the end of the 2020-21 season. Overnight, the championship has been dealt something of a "wake-up call" - including questions about its relevance to manufacturers.
