DS Techeetah's Antonio Felix da Costa triumphed in the Marrakesh E-Prix, narrowly edging out Max Gunther, who replaced him at BMW i Andretti Motorsport.

Reigning champion Jean-Eric Vergne, who missed practice on Friday due to illness, finished third as Techeetah capped an excellent weekend of action in Morocco.

However, it could have been even better, with Gunther selling Vergne a dummy on the final lap to seal second.

Da Costa, who now leads the drivers' championship, said: "I had to play a bit of a brave card in there, I let Gunther get super close at one point.

"I think we have been planning in our mind and the amazing preparation back home, all the guys in Paris.

"We do a lot of hard work and it has paid off, that one slaps! It was really cool.

"I have to say to Vergne, hats off. This guy had a tough week, so hats off to him, he's had a hard day, I think he is still struggling right now.

"But he pulled a podium for the team so well done."
