In a pair of social media posts across Instagram and Twitter late on Tuesday, Jean-Eric Vergne and Antonio Felix da Costa confirmed their seats at DS TECHEETAH for Season 8.

The former champions revealed the news on their respective social media accounts, with Vergne and Da Costa both posting sincere messages that they're ready 'make it a fun one' and to 'keep writing history'.

Together, JEV and Da Costa have made DS TECHEETAH a powerhouse in all-electric street racing. It's a familiar sight to see the black and gold flashes at the front of the pack

Vergne has been a long-standing member of the team since the familiar black and gold colours joined the grid in 2016/17. The Frenchman led the squad to two back-to-back titles in 2017/18 and 2018/19, a first in Formula Es history.


Da Costa's arrival in 2019/20 made the Franco-Chinese outfit the team to beat, putting in a dominant performance to take the Championship crown in his first season with the team. The Portuguese driver's success made it a hat-trick of driver titles and a pair of team titles for DS TECHEETAH.

Busy preparing for Season 8, the DS TECHEETAH pair will get their first spin at the official pre-season test at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia at the end of November before the 2021/22 season kicks off in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia on 28 and 29 January 2022.
