UNPREDICTABLE

The conditions changed between sun, rain and even hail during the race on the narrow street circuit around the famous Invalides. Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi kept their cool under the extremely difficult conditions. Taking up the race from seventh and eighth on the grid respectively, they ultimately finished in 3rd and 4th place.

“DON’T DO ANYTHING STUPID”

“That was an incredible race,” said Daniel Abt after claiming his second podium result of the season. “After a strong start with great fights, I felt I could win today. But then a shower came and after that things turned chaotic. I could hardly see through my visor. The car was floating and I had zero grip. So I told myself not to do anything stupid and just bring the car home. This podium is crucial, we need these points.”

SHOPPING TOUR

Ahead of the race, Audi sent Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi in the new Audi e-tron on a shopping trip in Paris. The two Formula E drivers were challenged to acquire elegant evening attire in the “city of fashion.” The tour produced some photos and film footage of the two race drivers of a kind that is rarely seen.
