FORMULA E: HARD-FOUGHT POINTS

With a hard-fought seventh position, Audi driver Lucas di Grassi scored crucial points for the Formula E title race in the E-Prix in Rome. His teammate, Daniel Abt, finished out of the points for the first time this season.

FIGHT BACK

In a spectacular race that had to be stopped for nearly one hour due to a pile-up shortly after the start, the Brazilian from the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team still managed to fight back from thirteenth on the grid to seventh position. “We have to score points regularly to win the championship, even in the races where we are not fighting for victories. That’s what we did today,” says Lucas di Grassi.

“A DAY TO FORGET”

Daniel Abt finished out of the points for the first time this season. After a technical problem in qualifying, the German had to settle for seventeenth position on the grid. In the race, he lost all chances of a good result when he had to restart his Audi e-tron FE05 once. “I feel like I did a good job today but, unfortunately, I had technical issues. That’s why it was a day to forget for me.”

PIZZA FOR THE TEAM

A special mission for Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi: Ahead of the race, the two Formula E drivers ventured into Rome’s urban traffic as pizza delivery men on eco-friendly electric scooters. The mechanics and engineers of the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team were delighted about the pizza delivery, but criticized that the pizzas had suffered massive damage during the trip.
