Formula E

In its first year, FIA Formula E became a true success story for fans and racers. Meanwhile, the third season of the highly competitive electric race series is already underway and the championship has begun with new locations, stars and technology.


What was originally treated with skepticism by some has now not only established itself in the motorsport world, but has also become a hotspot for drivers, fans and new technology. On 9 October 2016 the FIA Formula E began its third season in Hong Kong. A particular highlight and for the first time in the calendar are the races in New York.

Audi are strengthening their commitment in this season: From now on, the four rings will thus be prominently featured on the nose, side and the rear wing of the ABT Schaeffler FE02. Furthermore for the 2017/2018 season, the brand will take Formula E into a fully factory backed motorsport programme.

The ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport team line up in an illustrious starting field with ten international teams, and they compete in the FIA Formula E with former Formula 1 driver Lucas di Grassi and youngster Daniel Abt.

“We have committed to a really desirable pairing in Daniel and Lucas,” says team principal Hans Jürgen-Abt. “Lucas was involved with the development of the series from the very start and is therefore one of the most coveted names on the scene – we are incredibly proud that he decided to go with us.”
