FORMULA E: LUCAS DI GRASSI CELEBRATES PODIUM
SECOND PLACE FOR DI GRASSI
The second race of the season on the outskirts of Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh was marked by rough duels, numerous overtaking manoeuvres and two safety car periods that repeatedly packed up the field. In all of the duels, Lucas di Grassi, who had started the race from third place on the grid, kept a cool head and claimed second place after 45 minutes of racing. For the 35-year-old Brazilian, it marked his 31st podium finish in Formula E, including 10 victories.
ABT WITH FIGHTBACK
In sixth position, Daniel Abt scored valuable points for himself and the teams’ championship. The German had started the race from the fifteenth spot on the grid, initially made up some positions, but subsequently dropped to the end of the field due to a drive-through penalty. With the help of the safety car and several bold overtaking manoeuvres, he fought back into the points again. “These points today were really hard-fought, but they felt good after a difficult start to the weekend,” says Daniel Abt. “We may not have scored a lot of points yet, but we know that we’ve got the performance and the car to be in contention for victories. Now we just need to put it all together.”
