Reigning DTM champion will replace Daniel Abt in Formula E

The Audi factory team in Formula E named the successor Daniel Abt for the remainder of the 2019/20 season. The German driver will be replaced by his compatriot, two-time and current champion of the DTM body series, Rene Rast.

Audi, we recall, dismissed Abt after a scandal in a virtual race, when a professional simracer took part in it instead.

Rast will hold six races, which will be held in Berlin from 5 to 12 August. But for him it will not be a debut. In 2016, he performed at one stage, just in Berlin, for the Aguri team. Then Rast qualified 13th and finished 17th after a collision at the start.

In July, the 33-year-old German rider will conduct tests on the Lausitzring track.
