Abt ready for home race

As Formula E drivers get ready for the eighth race of the season, ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport driver Daniel Abt is eager to get going at his home race in Germany.

Abt, who is one of two Germans on the grid, expressed his desire to impress his home crowd this weekend and revealed his ambitions to replicate his podium performance in the USA.

The 23-year-old has been underperforming this season compared to his Brazilian teammate Lucas di Grassi, who is also the Championship leader.

However, the Kempten-born driver explained that he bears no envy towards his teammate and added that he will aid him in the title race.

“It’ll certainly be a great feeling to drive through our capital city in my race car – the excitement is growing from day to day,” Abt told motorsport.com.

“The standings don’t interest me. I want to finish on the podium in my home race and celebrate with the German fans.

“Furthermore; it’s the best way to help Lucas in the title battle and to bring along our team in the team classification.

“We know that we can achieve something great with our package and a top team performance. I promise that we’ll do everything to win a trophy.”
