2014/2015 – SEASON 1

INSTANTLY AN E WINNER

The Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team is a winner in Formula E right from day one. On 13 September 2014, Lucas di Grassi wins the first ever E-Prix in Beijing. In Formula E’s inaugural season, the chassis, motor, gearbox and tyres are specified and provided to all entrants by the Formula E organisation.

Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler, the first and – for four years the only German team finishes the inaugural season in third place of the teams’ classification and its driver Lucas di Grassi in third of the drivers’ championship.

SEASON HIGHLIGHTS

Spark-Renault SRT 01E on the grid

1.  Beijing (China): Lucas di Grassi wins Formula E’s inaugural race.

Lucas di Grassi:万博 “A dream came true for me and for our team. As the first winners in Formula E we went down in motorsport history. Formula E races pose a very special challenge: you not only have to be a racing driver but, at the same time, pay attention to the energy management of your racing 万博体育.”

Daniel Abt on the podium

2. Miami (USA): Daniel Abt in third position claims his first Formula E podium.

 

Daniel Abt: “At the end of the race, I had to save energy and reduce pace, so I wasn’t able to maintain my lead and lost victory. Even so, it was a really great day. This podium marked the end of a tough time in racing for me. On the cool-down lap, I even had a few tears in my eyes.”

3. Long Beach (USA): Daniel Abt clinches the first Formula E pole position for Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler.

Lucas di Grassi: “Taking part in the first 万博体育 race on Red Square directly next to the Kremlin was an awesome experience. And then I even won a trophy in Moscow.”

4. London (United Kingdom): Daniel Abt finishes runner-up in final race.

 

Daniel Abt:万博 “That was a podium finish with mixed feelings. Obviously, second place for me was great. However, that my teammate Lucas just barely missed the Formula E drivers’ title by five tenths of a second was very, very unfortunate.”

SEASON HIGHLIGHTS

1.  Mexico City (Mexico): Lucas di Grassi scores the first victory of the season for Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler.

 

Lucas di Grassi: 万博“What a victory! Following a collision on lap one that was not of my own doing, I had to have the rear wing changed. After that, I was running in the last position and, even so, finished in the top spot. On that day, I managed the perfect mix of attack and defence, of using and of saving energy.”

2.  Berlin (Germany): The home round sees pole position, second position and the fastest race lap being clinched by Lucas di Grassi.

 

Lucas di Grassi: “I would really have loved scoring the home victory for our team in front of the large turnout of such enthusiastic fans. Unfortunately, though, the temperature of the battery in my 万博体育 rose quickly. That’s why I had to pace myself somewhat and, unfortunately, wasn’t able to maintain the lead. Even so, the mood in the grandstands remained fantastic.”

Daniel Abt:万博 “First, a fault in the battery management system and then the fastest race lap after the 万博体育 swap. The point for that lap was and continues to one of my hardest-fought ones in Formula E.”

Lucas di Grassi on the podium

4. Montreal (Canada): Lucas di Grassi wins the first of the two races and in the second one the next day clinches the driver’s title.

NEW CARS, NEW VICTORIES

2. Mexico City (Mexico): Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler with a spectacular photo finish pulls off its third Mexican victory in succession.

 

Lucas di Grassi: “That was arguably the best Formula E race of my 万博体育eer: on the final metres before the finishing line I overtook the leader and still won.

Sticker 50th E-PRIX

3. Hong Kong (China): Lucas di Grassi and Daniel Abt contest their 50th Formula E race in the same team – di Grassi finishes runner-up, Abt takes the fourth spot.

 

Lucas di Grassi:万博 “The 50th Formula E race, plus I’m on the grid together with Daniel Abt for the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team for the 50th time. That in itself was a record and a huge reason to celebrate. But then I also finished runner-up and so clinched our 38th trophy in total. Fantastic!”
