RAST: “A GREAT RESULT”

After his first podium on Wednesday, René Rast achieved the best qualifying result of his still young Formula E career on Thursday in Berlin. The German started the finale from third on the grid and missed the podium by just 0.739 seconds. “I was overtaken by Nyck de Vries early in the race,” said the Formula E rookie. “After that, it was all about managing my energy as well as possible. This worked out quite well. In the end, I came very close to Sébastien Buemi, unfortunately not close enough to overtake him. I am very happy with what I learned in these six races. On the podium yesterday and fourth place today were a great result."

FIRST PODIUM FOR RAST

The day before, in his fifth race for the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team, Rast showed himself in outstanding form on the extended track at Tempelhof in Berlin: fastest in group qualifying, which scored him an extra point, fourth in Super Pole and an intelligent race wherein he fully exploited the efficiency of his Audi e-tron FE06 and, on the final lap, squeezed past André Lotterer’s Porsche with a brave move and secured third place.

LUCAS DI GRASSI FIGHTS BACK

Lucas di Grassi still had a chance of finishing runner-up in the championship before the last race of the season on Thursday, although he did not score points on Wednesday. The Brazilian collided with the new champion, António Félix da Costa, and punctured a tire in the process. After the pit stop, di Grassi recorded the fastest race lap and finished in P21.

 

 

On Thursday Lucas di Grassi fought his way up from tenth on the grid to sixth with his Audi e-tron FE06. No other driver made up more places in the races than the Brazilian this season. “My qualifying lap was not the very best,” said di Grassi. “Season six is now history. Sixth place in the drivers’ championship, sixth place in the teams’ championship: It’s clear that we need to improve.”

MOST SUCCESSFUL TEAM IN HISTORY

Overall, Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler remains the most successful team in Formula E history with 43 podium places, even after the sixth season. In addition, Lucas di Grassi leads the eternal list of best drivers with 32 trophies and 796 points.

AUDI ELECTRIFIES BERLIN

From the racetrack to the road: With a lap through downtown Berlin, Audi promoted the two final rounds of the sixth Formula E season, which were held at the former Tempelhof Airport. Kelvin van der Linde was behind the wheel of the fully-electric Audi e-tron FE06. The South African was supporting the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team off the track during the preparation in the simulator and was a driver in the Formula E rookie test in Marrakesh. After the start at Alexanderplatz, van der Linde drove to the Reichstag, across the “Strasse des 17. Juni” and past Potsdamer Platz. The highlight was a stopover in front of the Brandenburg Gate, where numerous tourists were delighted with the unusual photo opportunity.
