Why a brutal title defence can still yield another Formula E crown

It hasn't been properly reflected by the points table, but Antonio Felix da Costa has been nigh-on flawless in his Formula E title defence in 2021. Returning to the scene of his Berlin dominance in 2020, he has the chance to set the record straight and claim a remarkable against-the-odds second title

We're thirteen races in and still a wide-open title battle wages in Formula E. Stitching together any kind of consistent run of form has been a rare commodity. As such, ahead of the season finale this weekend, there’s a dozen credible candidates that could be crowned the eventual champion.

Antonio Felix da Costa is just one of the 18 drivers who can, mathematically at least, emerge from the last double-header event of this bewildering 2021 season with the championship.
