Lucas Di Grassi and Rene Rast will continue at Audi for the 2020-21 Formula E Season.
Di Grassi will run his seventh season with the German team, while this will be Rast’s first full season in Formula E.
With 10 wins to his name in a total of 69 appearances, di Grassi is one of Formula E’s most experienced and successful drivers.
He will team up with Audi DTM star Rene Rast, who has some experience in the series, having raced in a couple of events, but this will be his first time running a full-season seat.
Rast had already taken part in the Berlin E-Prix last season, after Daniel Abt and Audi parted ways.
Dieter Gass, Head of Motorsports at Audi, has commented that “With his impressive performances in Berlin, Rene proved that he feels comfortable in Formula E and at the same time is also fast and successful. He has absolutely earned his place in our Formula E team.
“Lucas is the most successful driver in the field and extremely hungry to win his second title. Rene has already left an impressive mark in Berlin. We are enjoying his determination year after year in the DTM. I am already looking forward to experiencing it in Formula E”, he added.
“I have experienced everything in these six years: great successes, defeats, insane emotions, and the best is yet to come, because the start-up from back then is now turning into an FIA World Championship. Together with Audi and Rene, I will give everything in 2021 to have a say in the fight for the World Championship title”, expressed di Grassi.
“The races in Berlin have definitely whetted my appetite for more, so I’m now looking forward to my first full season in Formula E. Starting in this World Championship for Audi is the next exciting chapter in my career and I am really looking forward to it”, said Rast, a driver with an already vast career in the world of motorsports.
