Di Grassi tees up intense season finale and a title tilt with victory for Audi in Berlin

Lucas di Grassi (Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler) fired himself into the championship mix with a stunning victory in the BMW i Berlin E-Prix presented by CBMM Niobium Round 14, fending off ROKiT Venturi Racing’s Edoardo Mortara by a tenth of-a-second while Mitch Evans (Jaguar Racing) rounded out the podium. The DS drivers then lost out to the charging Audi duo, led by di Grassi, with teammate Rene Rast flying from 12th to second spot. After the Audis hit the front, ROKiT Venturi Racing’s Edoardo Mortara and Norman Nato then jumped the pair through their ATTACK MODE boost. He jumped Evans for sixth, Nato for fifth and Mortara for fourth before making his way beyond Vergne – at the same time teammate di Grassi pipped the Frenchman – for a podium spot, with the two Audis second and third. Evans’ momentum saw him battling Nato for the final spot on the podium as the race headed into the final ten minutes.
