The MS / AD Andretti FE driver managed to score 20 championship points with four top 10 finishes, with a season best 6th place at the first round of the Hong Kong ePrix last December.
“It wasn’t my best one,” said da Costa at the pre-race drivers press conference. “Regardless of everything, as an athlete, I’m not here to finish P15 and consider that a positive weekend. As a person it’s not the way I like the approach the season or race weekend.
“We just have to do the best with what you have. We have put the car two times into Super Pole. At some point you just have to do with what you can and what you have. The future is bright with this team.”
As announced back in July 2017, BMW will enter Formula E and convert the MS/AD Andretti operation into a full factory works team. While da Costa is a BMW factory driver and currently competes in the FIA World Endurance Championship with BMW Team MTEK, he has yet to confirm whether he will stay with the team for 2018-19.
“I have been racing with them for six years. Hopefully everything works out and I will be with them next year,” answered da Costa.
