A word from Daniel Abt

Looking behind a few days later: what does May 19, 2018 meant to you?
I haven’t unequivocally eaten all this yet. we feel like my beat is still somewhere in a operation of 180 whenever we consider about it. That Saturday has no doubt been a best day in my motorsport career to date. Not only since we won though since it was an comprehensive prominence for Audi and a team. 

Was there a impulse in Berlin we remember quite well?
There were so many, generally a many touchpoints with a fans that gave us such a gentle acquire and upheld us. Obviously memorable as good are a mins on lectern when we mount in front of your possess fans on home dirt and a inhabitant anthem is played. The rite in Formula E is singular and addictive. 

In further to a largest series of points ever scored by a group on a singular day, we clinched a initial “clean sweep” in Formula E history. What does it take to make such a ideal day?
Unfortunately, we can’t hang that into a formula. The many critical element, perhaps, was that we’re gradually removing over a debility in qualifying. When we start from a front we can do your possess thing and it’s easier to get into your rhythm. we wasn’t even sharpened for a fastest path during all. It somehow happened all by itself.

What creates a Audi e-tron FE04 so clever this season?
Audi and a partner Schaeffler did a glorious pursuit of building a new powertrain pre-season. While a Formula E margin in subordinate is still offset and intensely tighten we can entirely use a potency of a engine in a race. Also, all a procedures and systems in a group are using ideally well-spoken and as drivers we feel totally gentle in a Audi e-tron FE04.

May we ask how a post-race celebration was on Saturday?
Needless to say, a celebration was fantastic. It was also good that many guys from a group were there. When we got behind to my hotel in a morning my group principal, Allan McNish, was only boarding a convey streamer for a airfield – that was a really humorous encounter. He even immediately tweeted cinema of me and my breakfast kebab. This shows what kind of a good atmosphere we have in a team. 

How are we going to prerogative yourself or relax after a days in Berlin? 
This week I’m going to perform a large wish of cave and transport to a Indy 500 competition in a United States. That’s been on my list for a prolonged time though never worked out before due to my possess races and commitments. Conor Daly, my former teammate in GP3, is racing there and will be my personal debate guide.
