FORMULA E: LUCAS DI GRASSI TRIUMPHS IN MEXICO

Hat-trick for Audi: For the third time in a row, the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team has won the E-Prix in Mexico City. In front of packed grandstands at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez circuit, Audi driver Lucas di Grassi notched up his ninth Formula E victory with a spectacular photo finish after a breathtaking maneuver in the last second.

 

PHOTO FINISH

Contributing to the triumph in Mexico was the efficiency of the fully electric Audi e-tron FE05 in a gripping and turbulent race. While his closest rivals had to conserve energy in the fight for victory during the final laps, the Audi driver was able to continue to attack and overtake the leading Mahindra, driven by Pascal Wehrlein, with a stunning overtaking maneuver just before the finish line. Previously, the Brazilian had already taken second place from Nissan driver Oliver Rowland.

“COULD HARDLY BELIEVE IT”

“That was probably the best race of my Formula E career. My adrenaline level was extremely high and I could hardly believe that it worked. Thank you to everyone at Audi Sport who worked so hard to build such a great car,” said di Grassi.

A POINT FOR DANIEL ABT

Di Grassi’s teammate, Daniel Abt, also drove a strong race. After a minor error in qualifying, last year’s winner had to line up for the race from the last row of the grid. Over the course of the 45 laps, the German battled his way forward through the field from twenty-first on the grid to take the flag in tenth place, finishing in the points in the fourth race of the season.

Ahead of the race, Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi were initiated by a local charro into the art of the popular competition with horses that is similar to rodeo. Wearing typical Mexican sombreros, the two drivers of the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team also had the chance to try their skills at lasso throwing.
