The Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler ABB FIA Formula E team scored points in the opening race of the 2018/19 season, the Ad Diriyah ePrix in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.
Drivers Daniel Abt and Lucas Di Grassi finished the race in eighth and ninth place respectively.
Speaking following the race, Abt commented by saying:
But we were simply not fast enough today, “so we had to fight hard for our positions. It was a tough race for us.
Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler Team Principal Allan McNish commented on the race saying:
I think all of the teams suffered very much under the conditions on this difficult race track that was new for everyone. “Qualifying was like a gamble and nobody was able to prepare perfectly. In the end, we have to settle for Daniel (Abt) and Lucas (di Grassi) still having finished in the points but, obviously, the result is not what we expected or capable of. We’re taking plenty of homework with us to Neuburg and clearly want to improve for the next race in Marrakesh.
