FORMULA E: NO RACE LUCK IN MONACO

Lady luck was missing in the Monaco E-Prix for Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi. Despite strong performances, neither of the Audi drivers scored points in the race.

QUALIFYING PLAYS KEY ROLE

On the shortest track of the Formula E season, the qualifying sessions again played a key role. The leading drivers in the overall classification were once again disadvantaged, as they were the first to have to go out on the track. None of the initial group managed to make it into “Super Pole” of the fastest six drivers. Lucas di Grassi had to settle for the thirteenth grid spot, with Daniel Abt sixteenth – on a racetrack where overtaking is extremely difficult.

DI GRASSI RETIRES

Both drivers of the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler squad managed to make up places in the race. Lucas di Grassi overtook several rivals and was running in eighth place when he was forced into the guardrails and had to retire. “After the race, he told the stewards he hadn’t seen me,” said di Grassi. “If he leaves his line under braking, he has to make sure that no one is there. This retirement is extremely annoying, because we would have earned crucial points in the title fight today.”

NO REWARD FOR ABT

Daniel Abt gave a spirited performance, which saw him plough through the field to finish eighth. However, after nudging a competitor, the German was later relegated back to fifteenth. “To make up so many positions in Monaco is virtually impossible,” said Daniel Abt. “That’s why the time penalty is particularly disappointing for me and the team. At the start of the full course yellow phase, a car in front of me braked so hard that I was simply powerless to avoid him.”

CASINO ROYALE

With a round of blackjack at the casino in Monaco, the two Audi drivers, Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi, got in the mood for the Formula E race in the gamblers’ paradise. Team Principal Allan McNish, who drove to the PR event in the new Audi e-tron, served as the croupier.
