The ABB Formula E Race at Home Challenge recently caused some negative headlines, or more specific, one of their drivers did. German FIA Formula E driver Daniel Abt got caught cheating in the last round of the event. As punishment, he was to donate €10,000 to a charity and was even suspended from his racing team Audi. We wrote about it already here.
It is still in discussion who will replace Abt in the upcoming races. Rumour has it that German DTM driver René Rast will take over Abt’s empty spot. The series will go into round six on Saturday. It has still not been revealed on which circuit the competition is going to take place. Currently, Pascal Wehrlein leads the overall standings, followed by Stoffel Vandoorne.
If you want to see whether Evans can overtake Da Costa, tune in to the official YouTube channel of FIA Formula E on Saturday at 4.30 PM CEST.
Can Delétraz get his revenge match in the SRO E-Sport GT series?
The SRO E-Sport GT Series Championship is slowly coming to an end. Round 4 out of 5 is going to take place at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on Sunday.
The drivers competed at Nürburgring in the last round, facing rainy and cold weather conditions. The pro division had an incredibly close neck-to-neck finish: British Formula 3 driver Ben Barnicoat won the game with just +0.070 seconds ahead of runner-up Louis Delétraz. The two drivers were heading right next to each other towards the finishing line, but Barnicoat’s vehicle turned out to be slightly faster.
In the Silver division, Triple A driver Jesus Sicilia managed to keep his foothold on the wet track and won the round with a total time of 61:36.
