The 2019 motorsport year will begin in Africa for Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler: On Saturday, January 12, the second ABB FIA Formula E Championship race of the season will be held in Marrakesh (Morocco). Following two top-ten finishes at the season opener in December, Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi now aim to up the ante in the Audi e-tron FE05.

The premiere of the Formula E season in Saudi Arabia was a round with highs and lows for the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team: Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi after a difficult qualifying showed strong fightbacks to eigth and ninth place scoring their first points. However, following eight consecutive podiums last season, they went home without a trophy this time. “At the first race weekend in Riyadh, we clearly saw how high the level is and how strong the competition is in Formula E. We learned a lot and took a lot of homework with us to Germany,” says Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass.
