Formula E: Comeback in London
Rast and di Grassi finish in the top six
René Rast made up a few positions right after the start and moved up into the points. Together with Lucas di Grassi, the German drove a clean race, taking turns with his teammate while trying to overtake rivals. “It was a good day today, but also a crazy race,” says René Rast, who finished fifth. “I lost some parts in a few touches at the start, plus my steering was a little bent, but we still made up eight places.”
Lucas di Grassi was unlucky during both of his attack mode activations, because he twice got stuck behind a competitor. “Sometimes we gained positions, then lost them again. That’s why we didn’t get as far ahead as we had hoped,” says the Brazilian. “Still, the points for sixth place today are extremely important.”
“A disappointing day”
“Let’s be honest: It was a disappointing day for us today,” said Team Principal Allan McNish. “We tried a strategy move with Lucas that was allowed by the regulations and that other teams have done in the past, but unfortunately it didn’t work out one hundred percent and we accept the FIA stewards decisions. René was on his way to the front and was robbed of points by a collision.” After 13 of 15 races, Rast is in tenth place in the drivers’ standings with a 23-point gap to the leader, teammate di Grassi follows six points behind in 13th place. In the teams’ standings, Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler is in sixth place.
