Valencia, in Spain, will host the entire grid of the World Championship starting this Saturday
Lucas Di Grassi begins his campaign for the 2021 season of Formula E this Saturday (28), when the Audi Sport team will participate in the collective test session of the World Championship, scheduled to happen until the first of December, next Tuesday, in Valencia (Spain). It will also be the first official contact of the Brazilian with the Audi e-tron FE07 model equipped with the new MGU05 engine, which for the first time was fully developed by the German factory. The Formula E 2021 season will officially begin on January 16, in Chile.
“Audi was able to produce a lighter and more efficient powertrain. And we will put it to the test in Valencia ”, highlights Di Grassi. “For example, the weight savings with the inverter was 35kg, this alone is a huge gain in terms of engineering. The electric-electronic system in Formula E is very important and determines a large part of what the car will be able to do”, concluded Di Grassi.
