Formula E: home turn for Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler

Posted on 20. May, 2019 by in Audi Canada

“I feel that Berlin is entrance adult during accurately a right time. Following a reversal in Monaco, where we went home though any points in annoy of a good foe by Daniel and Lucas, a team’s home turn is a ideal place for a comeback,” says Allan McNish. A demeanour during a statistics underlines a group principal’s statement: a Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler group went home empty-handed usually on 5 foe weekends in a story of Formula E so distant – and during slightest one of a dual drivers scored a lectern finish in a subsequent race. Allan McNish: “The good news is: all is still open in a championship. With a clever outcome in Berlin, we wish to make a conflict for a title, before a afterwards remaining 3 races, like final year, a genuine thriller.” 

The 2.377-kilometer circuit on a Tempelhof airfield in a south of a city, that was close down in 2008, is a venue for a tenth turn of a season. In 1948 and 1949, Tempelhof was a airfield for a general Airlift by that a Allied Powers granted a locked-in West Berliners with food and goods.

Last year, a fans witnessed a dream weekend of a German team: Daniel Abt initial clinched stick position, afterwards won a foe in autocratic character brazen of Lucas di Grassi, and also set a fastest foe path in a process. This limit points outcome to be achieved by a motorist pairing has been singular so distant in a story of Formula E. Since a initial deteriorate in 2014, Formula E has raced in Berlin 5 times, 4 times during Tempelhof and once during Alexanderplatz. Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi scored a sum of 5 lectern finishes during these events. 

“Berlin is like a crater compare in a Bundesliga deteriorate for me: a foe has singular stress and a really possess rules. we simply feel gentle in a city and during Tempelhof. The support from a many fans already gives me a boost before we even get to a track,” says Daniel Abt. “All a certain thoughts from final deteriorate are still in my mind. Obviously, we’re all starting from blemish again on Friday, though even so: we know how to bind trophies and win in Berlin.” 

This year, a surprising calendar poses a special plea in Berlin: Because a foe will already start during 1 PM on Saturday, a dual giveaway use sessions will be hold on Friday and a foe day will start directly with subordinate in a early morning. Due to a lane still being unwashed though prior use sessions or a ancillary program, this competence meant that there will be an additional waste for a initial subordinate groups in that Lucas di Grassi (Group 1) and Daniel Abt (Group 2) compete.

“That a tip 5 in a championship always have to validate initial is apparently tough, though creates for a churned grid ensuing in retaining racing,” says di Grassi. The prior 9 races this deteriorate have seen 8 opposite winners. “Berlin is one of a highlights of a year for all of us: we have good memories of a one-two outcome final year and are looking brazen to a support from many friends and partners. As distant as a foe goes, I’m confident: we’ve got a opening to win races. A good subordinate and a purify foe – and we’ll be in contention.”
