Season 5 (2018/2019)
With the second-generation car, Formula E 2018/2019 starts the new season with the biggest change to date: for the first time in the series’ still young history, only one car per driver is used due to the improved battery capacity. Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler starts the new season as defending champion, which once again provides plenty of variety and exciting racing – from the hottest race of the year with 37 degrees Celsius in Santiago de Chile to pouring rain and hail in Paris.
Two of the season’s highlights: the heartbeat finale at the Mexico City E-Prix, where Lucas di Grassi wafer-thinly clinched Pascal Wehrlein’s victory on the start-finish straight, and di Grassi’s victory at the home race in Berlin. After 13 races on five continents with nine different winners from eight teams, four drivers from three teams still have a chance to win the title before the season finale. With ten podium finishes, one pole position and eight additional points for the fastest race lap, the Audi e-tron FE05 is the most successful Formula E racing car of the season.
Statistics Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler:
Races: 13, victories: 2, podiums: 5
