Following victory in Mexico: Audi travels to Formula E in Uruguay

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

On triumphing in Mexico, Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler wrote a piece of Formula E history. #danielabt was the first German driver to have clinched a victory in this #racing series. In the next round at #puntadeleste (Uruguay) on Saturday, March 17, the team around #danielabt and reigning champion #lucasdigrassi is determined to repeat its success. The race will be the sixth of twelve this season. Following a break last season, Formula E is returning to #uruguay this weekend. The circuit in #puntadeleste is set directly along the beach promenade and exudes a special flair. Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler has fond memories of the South American place. On both previous Formula E visits, #lucasdigrassi celebrated a podium finish and his teammate, #danielabt, has scored points in #uruguay as well. Following a few technical issues, Audi found its old strength again at the season’s midpoint. At the race in Mexico, #danielabt celebrated the first victory of a German in Formula E. After a strong race finishing in ninth position and fastest lap, #lucasdigrassi scored his first points. “After Santiago and Mexico I’m finally going to race without a grid penalty in Punta,” says the Brazilian. “For me, it’s a bit like a restart to the season. Now we as a team intend to win more races.” Following his commanding victory, Daniel Abt’s appetite for more has been whetted as well: “Mexico and the days that followed were absolute highlights for me – a long party on Saturday night, hundreds of messages with congrats, huge media response and a tremendous reception at home.” The German’s victory in the heart of Mexico City also marks the team’s 25th podium finish in Formula E. If Team Principal Allan McNish has his way, this number will rise quickly. “Daniel’s victory and Lucas’ strong fightback in Mexico showed what we’re capable of. A sweet reward for the hard work by the whole team, trackside and at home in Neuburg,” says the Scotsman. “This victory did all of us the power of good. However, in Punta everyone starts from zero again.
