Audi’s Di Grassi: ‘Pit lane move was bold and risky but I fully support my team’s call’

Lucas di Grassi and Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler attempted an audacious manoeuvre to climb the pack behind the Safety Car in the HeinekenĀ® London E-Prix Round 13. Lucas di Grassi has backed Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler’s strategy call in theĀ HeinekenĀ® London E-Prix Round 13; a pit lane manoeuvre that saw the Brazilian leapfrog from eighth position to first, and almost the race win. Di Grassi was informed of the penalty after the chequered flag, meaning exclusion from the results. “We could only do it if the Safety Car was slower than the speed limit in the pit lane otherwise, I would have lost positions. That allowed Lucas, given the length of the pit lane relative to the circuit, to overtake a few cars.
