Contributing to a delight in Mexico was a potency of a entirely electric Audi e-tron FE05 in a retaining and violent race. While his closest rivals had to preserve appetite in a quarrel for feat during a final laps, a Audi motorist was means to continue to conflict and pass a heading Mahindra, driven by Pascal Wehrlein, with a overwhelming overtaking scheme only before a finish line. Previously, a Brazilian had already taken second place from Nissan motorist Oliver Rowland.

“That was substantially a best competition of my Formula E career,” pronounced di Grassi. “Initially, it was all about staying cold and saving energy. At a end, it was about removing a overtaking maneuvers right, since it’s intensely formidable to pass on this lane in Mexico City. we swept past Oliver Rowland when he dismissed adult his Attack Mode. After that, Pascal Wehrlein shielded his position really aggressively. Still, we managed to pass him in a crazy final path and measure victory. My adrenaline spin was intensely high and we could frequency trust that it worked. Thank we to everybody during Audi Sport who worked so tough to build such a good car.”

Thanks to his initial win of a season, di Grassi now moves adult to fourth altogether in a drivers’ standings of a ABB FIA Formula E Championship. Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler shielded a fifth place in a teams’ sequence after 4 of thirteen rounds in a entirely electric competition series.

“Three true wins for Audi in Mexico City is a good achievement,” pronounced group principal Allan McNish. “It was a nerve-wracking competition and we didn’t know how it would spin out until a really final second. The Audi e-tron FE05 was illusory currently – some-more fit than any other car. This authorised Lucas (di Grassi) to waylay feat during a final moment. Such a tighten competition is not good for my heart. Still, there will be outrageous celebrations tonight. Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler is back!”
