An electrifying finish.
With technical know-how, racing talent and a solid relationship out of the cars, Daniel Abt and former champion Lucas di Grassi are arguably the most formidable pairing in Formula E.
A team that works.
Johann Abt began adapting horse-drawn coaches over 120 years ago in the southern Bavarian town of Kempten. From there, the Abt operation grew to become a leading specialist in tuning race cars for the Volkswagen Group winning the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) titles in 2002, ’04, ‘07-‘09 with the Four Rings brand and is now fully subsumed into the Audi Sport.
In 2017, motorsport legend Allan McNish was named Team Principal of Team Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler. A multiple 24 Hours of Le Mans race winner and World Sportscar Champion for Audi Sport, Allan brings a wealth of experience and charisma to the team, and aims to take it to ever greater heights in Season 5 (2018-19).
Today, together with Lucas Di Grassi and Daniel Abt, Team Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler is setting the standard in Formula E. Not just on the podium; with each race, the whole team provides valuable learnings for Audi’s entire electric mobility programme.
