FORMULA E: LUCAS DI GRASSI TAKES PODIUM FOR AUDI
DI GRASSI: “A GOOD DAY”
“When you’re on the podium in Formula E, it was a good day,” said di Grassi. “We worked hard overnight and improved the car a lot compared to yesterday. Nevertheless, the race was again hard work. We’ll continue to work in order to extract even more performance from of the car. We are driving the other way around in Berlin from Saturday onwards, which should also suit us.”
RAST SCORES FIRST POINTS
René Rast showed a strong performance on his debut. From 13th on the grid, the German made it into the top ten, even though he had dropped back to 17th at one stage. “As expected, my first race for Audi in Formula E was pretty chaotic,” said Rast. “Safety cars, full course yellows, accidents in front of and beside me. I learned a lot, gained experience and scored a point straight away.”
On his second race day for Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler, René Rast had a similar mishap as Lucas di Grassi on Wednesday. “I took a bit too much of a risk in qualifying,” said Rast. “While braking for the first turn, the right front wheel locked. As a result, I completely missed the apex of the corner and qualified last.” Rast started from the pit lane and made up ten positions in the race. In the end, the German missed out on scoring points by only 1.7 seconds.
