Saudi e-Prix: Portugal’s Da Costa wins Formula E season-opener

(CNN)Portugal’s Antonio Felix da Costa ushered in a new era for Formula E by holding off reigning champion Jean-Eric Vergne to win the inaugural round of the 2018-19 season in Saudi Arabia.

The street circuit at Ad Diriyah near Riyadh saw the debut of the much-vaunted Gen2 car and a unpredictable race with the outcome in doubt until the final turn of the 33 laps.
Da Costa, who had claimed pole for the BMW Andretti team, held off Techeetah’s Vergne to take the checkered flag by a whisker with Jerome D’Ambrosio in third for Mahindra Racing.
