Hard-fought points for Lucas di Grassi in Rome

Posted on 14. Apr, 2019 by in Audi Canada

Lucas di Grassi was a best-placed of those drivers who took partial in a initial subordinate organisation in Rome. On a city travel circuit of a Italian capital, this was a quite large waste on this occasion. In a fantastic competition that had to be stopped for scarcely one hour due to a wreck shortly after a start, a Brazilian from a Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler group still managed to quarrel behind from thirteenth on a grid to seventh position.

“Following a intensely formidable qualifying, it was a good competition for me,” di Grassi said. “We have to measure points frequently to win a championship, even in a races where we are not fighting for victories. That’s what we did today.” After 7 of thirteen races, a Audi motorist usually has a seven-point necessity to a personality of a ABB FIA Formula E Championship drivers’ standings. 

Daniel Abt finished out of a points for a initial time this season. After a technical problem in qualifying, a German had to settle for seventeenth position on a grid. In a race, he mislaid all chances of a good outcome when he had to restart his Audi e-tron FE05 once. “I feel like we did a good pursuit currently but, unfortunately, we had technical issues. That’s because it was a day to forget for me.” 

“A tough day for Daniel, though critical points for Lucas in a large design of a championship,” pronounced Team Principal Allan McNish. “After quickly stopping, Daniel was out of contention. From his grid position, Lucas got a limit of what was probable for us today.”
