Lucas di Grassi

Nationality: Brazilian

Age: 30

Team: Audi Sport ABT

Lucas Di Grassi is a Brazilian racing driver who has made a very successful career in World Endurance Racing with the Audi team, where he has been on the podium three times in Le Mans. Lucas Di Grassi also had a spell in Formula One in 2010 with Virgin Racing. However, it was a very unsuccessful period for Di Grassi, as he only lasted that single season.

Di Grassi had a strong opening season in Formula E. The Brazilain driver won the opening round in China and lead the driver’s championship until the sport reached round eight in Berlin.

The former Formula One driver won the race that initially extended his lead in the standings, but he was excluded from that race with an illegal front wing forcing him to concede top spot in the championship.

Di Grassi struggled to regain the points he lost in Berlin and finished third in the drivers standings. He will be hoping that the Audi Sport ABT team have a powertrain to provide him with race wins in the second season, and another chance to fight for the championship.
