LUCAS DI GRASSI

Born in Sao Paulo on August 11, 1984, Lucas Tucci Di Grassi showed his passion for speed since he as a child. When his father invited him to try a go-kart back in 1994 – at the age of 10 -, that was the spur for him to know what he wanted for life. In three years, Lucas was already contending in championships and winning races. 

In 2015, Di Grassi was racing both in the FIA Formula E Championship and the FIA World Endurance Championship, finishing as a runner-up in both campaings after five wins and 12 podium finishes. His performance was rewarded. Lucas gained even more acknoledgment in the motorsport world: the Brazilian was highlighted as the best endurance driver of the planet, the best Formula E driver and listed as the eight best racing driver overall in the year by Autosport magazine, putting him as the best Brazilian driver of the season.

Considered the best Brazilian driver of the current decade, Di Grassi overcame a 43-point defict in the standings to win the FIA Formula E championship title with Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler after winning two races, clinching three pole-positions and seven podium finishes.
