ANTONIO FELIX DA COSTA made it back-to-back wins for the first time in his Formula E career with 158 days between the two victories.
FE restarted in Berlin with the first of their final six races in the space of just nine days as Da Costa extended his lead in the title race.
Da Costa defended wheel-to-wheel from his teammate and two-time FE champion Jean-Eric Vergne to secure his first win after his last win back in February.
Da Costa said: “Everyone is talking to me like there’s one race left because of the stop and we’re only here on one trip but there’s six races to go.
“Everyone is just assuming that I have to win it and it’s a lot of pressure, I take it well.
“If there’s pressure it means it’s something important, I want to tell everyone that yes I want to win it, but there’s a long way to go.”
