Lucas di Grassi says he is looking to pick up from where Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler finished last season ahead of the 2018-19 season opener this weekend.

The season three champion endured a torrid start to last season after being dogged by reliability issues.

However Audi finally showed their true form in the second half of the season, with di Grassi picking up a remarkable seven top two finishes in a row, including two wins.

And with the Italian confident in the potential of the team’s e-tron FE05 car, he’s hopeful he can continue last season’s strong pace into Ad Diriyah.

“We want to take the momentum from last season with us,” di Grassi said. “As a team, we most recently stood on the podium eight consecutive times and would like to extend this string of success.

“Our e-tron FE05 is a powerful car, the team has matured once again and gelled even more closely.”

Despite his faith in his team however, di Grassi is wary of the strength of the competition in Formula E this year, pointing out that several teams were now investing more money in developing their cars.

He said, “Obviously, the competition will be tougher because everyone is investing more in Formula E. We challenged every detail and improved once again. We’re ready.”
