Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler Remains Without Points in London on Sunday

  • René Rast retires early after collision through no fault of his own
  • Strategy move with Lucas di Grassi almost pays off
  • Customer team Envision Virgin Racing leads the overall standings

After scoring points in the championship on Saturday with two top six places, Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler remained without points on Sunday. René Rast retired early after a collision that was not his fault. A strategic move that would have brought Lucas di Grassi victory only narrowly failed.

Lucas di Grassi and his team provided plenty to talk about at Sunday’s race in London: The Brazilian had started from tenth place and was running in ninth after twelve laps. When an accident caused a safety car period, the team tried a strategy move: While the field stayed behind the unusally slow safety car on the start-finish straight, di Grassi drove through the pit lane, made a short stop in front of his garage, returned to the track in the lead and crossed finish line in first position.
