  • Two world champions from 1984 and 2017 swap cockpits
  • What connects the legendary Audi Sport quattro S1 with the RS e-tron GT
  • Can emotionality also transfer to the electric age?

Both are top athletes: Sweden’s Stig Blomqvist wrote rally history with the Audi Sport quattro S1 in the 1980s. It was an era that established the legend of what was then Audi’s revolutionary drive concept. Lucas di Grassi was Audi’s most successful driver in the history of the Formula E championship. The two exchanged cockpits in Sanremo. Blomqvist climbed into the Audi RS e-tron GT and di Grassi into the Audi Sport quattro S1. Both racecar drivers reflect on the golden age of rallying and discuss the electrified present.
