Audi Sport Abt kept both drivers for next season
Brazilian di Grassi, who is championship leader, signed a new contract few weeks ago, while German Abt signed it just few days before the home race in Berlin. Abt, who is 22 years old, is the youngest driver in Formula E and has a fine season so far.
“I feel completely at home in Formula E and want to grow together with the series. Formula E is going through a fantastic stage of development that includes exciting races and many cool ideas off the track. I think this series has a great future. I’m delighted to still be on board, and want to grow together with Formula E. I’m obviously very proud that I can race in the future with the team that carries our family name,” said Abt.
Team boss Hans-Jurgen Abt is also happy after securing services of both drivers for the next season: “I’m pleased that our two drivers are fully committed to us and that we can look to the future together with our dream team. Motorsport is a hectic business, which is why we aim for continuity in such important aspects like technology, partners and drivers to create the greatest possible cohesion and calm within the team.”
