The Portuguese finished second in the DS Techeetah on Sunday evening in the fourth of a total of six races at the season finale at the former Berlin Tempelhof Airport and can no longer be overtaken in the overall standings. Maximilian Günther, on the other hand, experienced a contrasting program: After his victory on Saturday, the Oberstdorf-based BMW driver retired on Sunday in the early stages.
