Audi earnings to a “Big Apple” with Formula E

Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler sets a benchmark in New York in terms of lectern finishes (three) and fastest competition laps (three) and has already won a competition once, with a 1–2 victory. In addition, a German patrol has a best memories of a city, where Audi distinguished a teams’ pretension with a fanciful liberation during a final dual races of 2018. These prior formula are however usually statistics, given Formula E in a seventh deteriorate is as indeterminate as never before: in a drivers’ standings, a tip 6 are distant by usually 13 points, while in a teams’ standings, a tip 5 motorist pairings are distant by usually 14 points. René Rast is now fourth in a drivers’ standings.

“A demeanour during a standings shows how tighten all is. After 9 races, everybody is flattering most still in a game,” says Team Principal Allan McNish. For him, it’s all a some-more critical to settle a organisation in a tip organisation and put them in a best probable position for a season’s final phase. “Literally each indicate depends this deteriorate and it’s precisely with this mindset of fighting for each singular indicate that we’re going into a dual races in New York.”

Lucas di Grassi and René Rast also wish to take a movement and certain appetite from Mexico with them. The Brazilian-German twin recently managed a marvellous 1-2 feat in Puebla, after carrying started from eighth and ninth on a grid. “New York has always been good to us,” says di Grassi, who won in Brooklyn in 2018 and distinguished a teams’ championship on a lectern one day later. “The success in Mexico was good for all of us and has given us confidence. Now, we wish to bind a subsequent feat for Audi in New York.”

For di Grassi’s teammate René Rast, a Brooklyn circuit is new territory, that is also a box with many of a marks in his initial full Formula E season. “I’ve never been to New York before, so I’m really extraordinary about a city and all of a flair,” says Rast. “I usually know a lane from a simulator, though even then, it feels really exciting. Our idea now, of course, is to repeat a success from Mexico.” 

For a fourth time, a venue for a dual races is located in a Red Hook area in New York’s Brooklyn borough, that overlooks a skyline of Manhattan. The lane runs right along a seaside of Upper New York Bay, that separates Manhattan and Brooklyn. The circuit in New York, in a center of midsummer, is bloody with a length of 2.320 kilometers and a hairpin turns. “We’re awaiting prohibited temperatures, really high steam and, on tip of that, we’ll be starting on a lane that doesn’t pardon a smallest mistake,” says Allan McNish.

As with all of a remaining competition weekends in London and Berlin, dual races will be hold in New York. The start times: 16:30 internal time (22:30 CEST) on Saturday and 13:30 internal time (19:30 CEST) on Sunday. All of a general broadcasters, including promote times, can be found online during www.fiaformulae.com.

In further to a Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler bureau team, a Envision Virgin Racing patron organisation will also be chasing points with a e-tron FE07 that was grown by Audi. This season, Nick Cassidy and Robin Frijns are racing for a British patrol which, like Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler, has been a member of a Formula E family given a initial competition in 2014. Envision Virgin Racing has already won 3 races in New York. With dual lectern finishes this season, Frijns is now ranked in second altogether in a drivers’ standings.
