Whether in DTM or in Formula E: Each one of the eight Audi factory drivers has their own number on the side of their race car. Where do these specific numbers or combinations come from? What is the story behind the numbers from Robin Frijns to Daniel Abt on all of the Audi RS 5 DTM and Audi e-tron FE05 cars?
#4 ROBIN FRIJNS
“When I switched from karting to Formula BMW, I had number four given to me by the team. I won the rookie championship. The year after that, I had the same number and won the overall championship. Then I went to Formula Renault Two Litre. I had the 34 and won the championship. And then, in the Renault World Series, I had number four again and won the championship again. So, I think number four suits me quite well.”
#33 RENÉ RAST
“I had no other idea in my mind. 33 is easy to remember for people. Plus, I’m turning 33 this year. So, hopefully that’s a good sign.”
#53 JAMIE GREEN
“The 53 has been my number in racing since my karting days. Sometimes you can choose your number. As usual, I was late to submit my entry for karting. And the 53 seemed to be the one number that was still available. So, I ended up with JG53.”
