VORSPRUNG DURCH RACING

Since 1981, Audi Sport stands for “Vorsprung durch Technik” in international racing. Be it the World Rally Championship, Pikes Peak, Super Touring, DTM, GT racing or Le Mans prototypes: With impressive performances, Audi achieved success with numerous race victories and important championship titles in all of the racing projects. The current engagement consists of FIA Formula E, DTM and customer racing. The road-going models from the Audi Sport brand profit from the know-how that comes from racing.

DANIEL ABT: STATEMENT

DANIEL ABT: STATEMENT

Daniel Abt, after six years and 63 races, will no longer drive for Audi in Formula E. He has been part of our Formula E team since the debut of the racing series in September 2014, and our official factory driver since the autumn of 2017. In Mexico and at our home round in Berlin, Abt took two fantastic Formula E victories and scored a total of ten podium results. With Daniel, we celebrated great success and made enormous strides with Formula E. We are thankful for our time together and look back on it proudly. However, integrity, transparency and consistent compliance with applicable rules, especially with regards to the past, are top priorities for us at Audi. We stand by our culture of tolerating mistakes. However, the incidents that took place during the “Race at Home Challenge” sim racing series were not a mistake, but a conscious decision to go against the rules. That is what makes the big difference for us. Therefore, unfortunately, we had no other alternative than suspending Daniel Abt.
