Despite Hardships, Audi Formula E Endeavour Will Be To Continue Pushing

Despite Hardships, Audi Formula E Endeavour Will Continue To Push as the team is confident they can make it to the top

Following a difficult first third of the season marked by technical issues and racing incidents, Team Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler will start to round five of the season in the heart of Mexico City on Saturday (March 3). The two drivers, Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi, are facing another great challenge here.

In recent weeks, the race engineers of Audi Sport have been working hard to analyze the technical problems of the Audi e-tron FE04. Lucas di Grassi crossed the finish line in each of the first two E-Prix events in Mexico City in first position – last year, following a spectacular fightback from the back of the field.

Daniel Abt has scored points in Mexico each time so far. Together with his teammate the German is traveling to Mexico from a fitness week in Lanzarote with all of the Audi factory drivers. The E-Prix in Mexico is a race of superlatives not only due to its impressive venue. The metropolitan area with some 20 million inhabitants ranks among the largest ones on Earth. In 2016, Audi opened one of its most modern plants in Mexico. The brand produces the Audi Q5 Premium SUV for the world market there.

Round five of the 2017/2018 Formula E season will be run over 47 laps, starting on Saturday at 4 PM local time (11 PM CET). In Germany, Eurosport will begin to air live coverage at 10.45 PM (CET). Internationally, some 70 channels cover the Formula E races. A full list is available on the internet at www.fiaformulae.com.
