Porsche has announced that ex-Red Bull F1 test driver, Le Mans class winner and 2019/2020 Formula E champion António Félix da Costa, will be fortifying its driver pairing for Formula E Season Nine, which is set to kick off in January 2023 with the new Gen3 car.

The Portuguese driver brings with him a wealth of racing experience, particularly in Formula E, in which he’s been involved since its earliest days. Overall he’s contested 96 races, with seven wins and 16 podium finishes contributing to his title win in the 2019/2020 season and respectable finishes in years besides.

He will be joining Pascal Wehrlein to complete the Porsche pairing. Next season will also see the introduction of the new Gen3 Formula E car, which of course we first saw in action at the 2022 Goodwood Festival Speed presented by Mastercard. The Mexico City E-Prix will kick the season off on 14th January 2023.

“I’m delighted that António is coming on board. He has an incredible skill set as a racing driver and has demonstrated many times that he’s a winner, not only in Formula E,” says Thomas Laudenbach, Vice President of Porsche Motorsport.

“We hold him in high regard as a driver and on his own merits as a person. He’s a positive guy who is a great fit for us and the Porsche Motorsport family. I’m confident that we’ll fight for victories and titles together for years to come.”
