How Berlin's FE finale unveiled DS Techeetah's new rivals

With both Formula E titles wrapped up, there wasn't a great deal to play for in the final two Berlin E-Prixs. But with both DS Techeetahs well down the grid, the two races at the Tempelhof Airport allowed two potential challengers to take the limelight

The final two races of the Formula E season were more than a couple of post-credit scenes serving to extend the running time. Antonio Felix da Costa had already, and rather comfortably, wrapped up the championship. His DS Techeetah squad had been crowned successive teams' title winners. It wasn't down to the wire as many expected or hoped; it wasn't all to play for.

But one last double-header on the extended Tempelhof Airport circuit to conclude a gruelling nine-day Berlin finale did act as a soft preview for the 2020-21 campaign. For Mercedes and Nissan e.dams offered a glimmer that if anyone can take the fight to the black-and-gold cars and make them sweat next year, then those two outfits head into the off-season in the best place to do so.
