Daniel Abt – Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler
Let’s go to Paris for the 8th round of the 2018-2019 season of Formula E in Paris, on the Invalides circuit. The main particularity of the Formula E championship, besides having a great panel of drivers, is to regroup around electric single seaters some of the largest car manufacturers in the world: BMW, Audi, Nissan, Venturi, DS, NIO, with Porsche and Mercedes joining next year.
The 2018-2019 Formula E season is very peculiar as we’ve had 7 drivers from 7 different team winning the first 7 races, with also 7 different polemen. A first !
The Paris round has been won by Robert Frijns, which make it the 8th winner in 8 rounds. It as also been the very first race to happen under the rain. I was really well seated at the end of the main straight, and could witness one of the craziest races ever. However taking photos from the spectators seating has not been easy because of the fences, the trees, the speakers, the lamp posts and the smartphones… I needed to be creative!
