25-year old German produced a perfect performance at his home race. Despite having to qualify in
the unfavored first group, Abt qualified effortlessly for the single timed lap for the fastest five, where
he threw down the gauntlet and easily clinched the first three points for the second pole position of
his Formula E career. This was followed by a dominant start-finish victory and as crowning glory the
point for the fastest race lap.
The Audi one-two finish in the home race in Berlin was made perfect by Lucas di Grassi. The
defending Champion set the fastest lap in qualifying with his Audi e-tron FE04, but then had a short
slide that dropped him down to fifth on the grid. After the start, the Brazilian needed only twelve laps
to move his way up to second place. Thanks to a faster pit stop, the Brazilian caught up with his
team mate and subsequently drove effortlessly home in second place. The third placed Jean-Eric
Vergne in Techeetah was already more than twelve seconds behind at the checkered flag.
