Podcast: How da Costa pulled off remarkable Cape Town pass

Feb 28 2023

The first ever Cape Town E-Prix was packed with incident, controversy, and a move by Antonio Felix da Costa that will go down in Formula E legend. But how did he pull it off?

He tells The Race Formula E podcast as Jack Nicholls, Sam Smith and Andrew van de Burgt ponder the magnificence of the pass – as well as several intricate storylines from a memorable weekend in South Africa.

Nick Cassidy’s contretemps with his former Super Formula sparring partner Sacha Fenestraz, a qualifying red flag debacle that ended Sam Bird’s race before it had even begun and a bizarre weekend for Cassidy’s Envision team-mate Sebastien Buemi are all covered off.

Our specialist Formula E trio also ask whether the high-speed Cape Town circuit will become a staple of the calendar or if it will go the way of Montreal and Seoul as a spectacular one-off host.

In addition to da Costa, the podcast also gets the thoughts of Buemi and Maserati team boss James Rossiter – who will have to try and pick his team up after a disastrous start to its maiden Formula E campaign.

The Race Formula E podcast is available free to subscribe to from all good podcast suppliers, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
