In Formula E, Daniel Abt belongs to the “men of the first hour”, as he has been part of every race. The German is one of the fan favourites in the paddock and a race winner: Already on ten occasions, the German has stood on the podium after a race – more than any other German.

Daniel Abt with fans

An autograph here, a selfie there and always time for a brief chat with the fans – Daniel Abt lives and loves Formula E. Since the racing series’ debut in September 2014, the German has been forming a team with Lucas di Grassi and due to his approachable nature is one of the most popular drivers in the paddock. “I like the special spirit in Formula E – not only among the teams but also among us race drivers and the fans around the world. That’s unique.”

Fall of 2017 marks the beginning of a new chapter in Daniel Abt’s career: For the first time, he is officially an Audi factory driver. This gave him a boost: In Mexico and at his home race in Berlin, he scored his first Formula E victories together with a total of ten times that he has stood on the podium. “It was great that I am able to repay the faith that Audi bestowed in me,” says Abt, who will again be racing for the brand with the four rings in the sixth Formula E season (2019/20).
