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 favorites in the paddock and has been a race winner since the 2017/2018 season: With his first two victories and the highest number of fastest race laps, Daniel Abt finally achieved his breakthrough during his fourth season. Now Abt is ready for the next step.

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 marked the beginning of a new chapter in Daniel Abt’s career: For the first time, he was officially an Audi factory driver. This seems to have given him a boost: In Mexico and at his home race in Berlin, he scored his first Formula E victories and he stood on the podium two more times during the season. “It was great that I am able to repay the faith that Audi bestowed in me,” says Abt.
