Turbulent day for Audi in Formula E in Mexico

In 2018, Daniel Abt distinguished his initial ever Formula E feat during a Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez circuit. This time, a competition day seemed to be over for a German as early as 8 AM: Due to a program communication problem, Abt crashed into a barrieres during a finish of a straight. “This was a many aroused impact of my career,” pronounced Abt, who was flown by helicopter to a sanatorium for examinations as a precaution. “I am blissful that a cars are so protected and that we survived currently roughly unharmed. It was a good feat of my organisation to get a automobile prepared to competition again. But of course, it was transparent that it would be a really formidable competition for me from roughly a behind of a margin and with most no practice. Now it’s all about removing fit again before Marrakesh.”

Lucas di Grassi fought his approach adult to 6th from 15th on a grid in another fantastic Formula E competition in front of an considerable crowd. This authorised a Brazilian to urge his 5th position in a Drivers’ standings of a all-electric racing series. “This was a tough race,” pronounced di Grassi. “Although we scored good points, I’m not 100 percent happy. We did not have a gait in a competition to pierce adult further. We have to work tough to get stronger in qualifying, though also in a race.”

“This was a violent day for us,” pronounced Team Principal Allan McNish. “For Daniel, it started in a bad approach with a crash, and for Lucas, with a formidable qualifying, it didn’t get off really good either. But, we still scored critical points. Coming by from 15th on a grid to 6th keeps Lucas right in a pretension fight. That Daniel was means to start during all was a good group effort. It wasn’t an easy day for us, though we’re already entirely focused on a subsequent competition in Marrakesh.”
