Audi driver Lucas Di Grassi is confident that the German Manufactuer now has a car capable of challenging for the championship after a slow start to the season.
The season four champion has taken 36 points from the last four race of the season, which has seen him rise to third in the drivers’ championship, 11 points behind Robin Frijns.
The Brazilian is confident that he can now challenge for the title by picking up consistent points.
“Again, we brought home good points,” said Di Grassi. “The champion does not have to be the most dramatic driver, and we are doing that.
“The aim is to win the championship, and by slowly making progress at every race we will be there to fight for the title and that is definitely the aim now for this season.”
Di Grassi, who is now in group one in qualifying for the Monaco E-Prix and the 34-year old and believes the qualifying system will play a massive part in determining this season champion.
“It is going to be difficult now being in group one in qualifying, and that is affecting every driver that is battling for the championship. This will be my fifth appearance in group one, which makes it hard to compete for a top ten place.
“However, we have managed ok, and with the improvements Audi is making to the car, it is putting us in a position to be able to challenge for the title.”
