How da Costa’s double and Cassidy’s collapse sets up a Formula E showdown

Nick Cassidy remains in pole position for this year’s Formula E world title but he made his task increasingly difficult with a disaster in Portland. Coupled with Antonio Felix da Costa’s double delight, it gives Porsche the momentum against Jaguar going into the title showdown in London

“I was one lap away from winning the championship this weekend.” Mistakes have been few and far between for Nick Cassidy this term on his quest for a maiden Formula E title, but a critical error within sight of that first crown has blown the championship battle wide open. Instead of walking away with his hands on the trophy, the Kiwi went scoreless at the Portland E-Prix double-header, and a 25-point lead prior to the event has been whittled down to just 12 ahead of the season finale in London later this month.

The late catastrophe for Cassidy and Jaguar in the USA opened the door for Porsche and Antonio Felix da Costa, and this potent combination scored a remarkable double that has propelled both into the championship mix with two races left.
