Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler - champion team
Winning the team title crowned four successful years for the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler squad in Formula E. After a third and a brace of second places in the previous three seasons, in the two concluding races of the finale of season four in New York Lucas di Grassi and Daniel Abt produced a stirring comeback to overturn a deficit of 33 points into a two point advantage. With four podium finishes and two fastest race laps on the final weekend, Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler claimed 78 of the maximum 94 points possible – and in doing so achieved the near impossible – the title in the teams’ classification.
“Incredible, we come here in a near hopeless position and still turn it all around. Team Champions – we couldn’t be happier. We were close every season so far and now we have this trophy in our trophy cabinet as well,” summarizes Prof. Peter Gutzmer, Chief Technology Officer at Schaeffler.
