LUCAS DI GRASSI DOMINANT

For Lucas di Grassi it was his tenth victory in the electric racing series with which he improved to second position in the overall Formula E drivers’ classification, behind title defender Jean-Eric Vergne. In the teams’ classification, Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler, after its 40th Formula E podium in total, also sits in second position before the final three races. “Winning Audi’s home round in front of such an enthusiastic crowd is simply fantastic. We’re back in the title race and are going to have a big party tonight.”

DANIEL ABT STRONG

Daniel Abt also showed a strong performance. Last year’s winner, as the fastest driver in his qualifying group, was only 27 thousandths of a second slower than his teammate but, with that, barely missed the “Super Pole.” After starting from sixth on the grid, Abt was involved in fierce head-to-head battles. “I was in the thick of the action. The battles were rough and I bent my steering column in contact with another car: a hard race, but some good points. And, needless to say, I’m happy for Lucas and the whole team for repeating our home victory. That’s simply fantastic!”

“SWEET VICTORY”

“It was a fantastic race for us,” said Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass. “Another home victory for Audi in Berlin – after Daniel’s win last year, Lucas scored this time. He drove a fantastic race and made no mistakes. The entire squad worked extremely hard for this success. Thank you to everyone who was involved in this. Winning on home soil in front of such a tremendous audience with so many fans and employees is particularly sweet.”
