Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Title defender #lucasdigrassi has given Audi an historic victory in the Formula E electric #racing series. In front of a record turnout, the Brazilian won the first E-Prix on Swiss soil.

Since 1954, no international circuit race has been held in #Switzerland. The return of international motorsport attracted far more than 100,000 spectators to the city circuit in the financial district of the metropolis. The crowd got to see an impressive presentation of Audi’s e-tron technology: After starting the race from fifth place on the grid, it took #lucasdigrassi only 18 laps to take the lead and to subsequently clinch an uncontested victory. After 39 laps, the Audi driver had a 7.542-second advantage over runner-up Sam Bird in a DS Virgin.
