Whatever Antonio Felix da Costa does for the rest of his career, even in retirement - if he's ever called upon to open a local supermarket or switch on the Christmas lights - he will now always be introduced as a Formula E champion.
In the five previous seasons of FE, no one had ever won the title with two rounds to spare, but da Costa did. A trio of consecutive pole positions preceded three largely unchallenged victories, split across Marrakech and in Berlin last week. That's a fine return for a driver who was overlooked by Formula 1 and whose junior career was typified by the word 'nearly'.
Prior to Sunday night's fourth Berlin race, when he clinched the crown with second place behind DS Techeetah team-mate Jean-Eric Vergne, his most recent title - a 2009 Formula Renault 2.0 NEC crown - helped earn an Abu Dhabi young driver F1 test call up with Force India the following year. He was slower than team-mates Paul di Resta and Yelmer Buurman, but had by no means disgraced himself.
