Heart-stopping final in New York: the title decision for the teams’ classification was open and hard-fought all the way to the final lap, with a mere two points finally making the difference: In Sunday’s race, Lucas di Grassi crossed the finish line in second place just ahead of teammate Daniel Abt after 43 laps around the street circuit in Brooklyn, with its view of downtown Manhattan.
In the first race on Saturday, Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler laid the foundation for the success with a doube victory: Lucas di Grassi won the race after a strong catching-up race from eleventh place on the grid ahead of Daniel Abt.
Team Principal Allan McNish said: “Yes, we were biting our nails all the way to the last corner and the final second of the race, but now it’s reality: Teams’ Champions! I'll now give Lucas and Daniel a big hug. This season was up and down, and they always did their best. Also, today when a push came to a shove, they delivered the goods. A big thank you also goes to our base camp in Germany. Great job.”
