Lucas di Grassi Departs Mahindra Formula E Team
The all-electric championship, Formula E, will bid farewell to seasoned ex-Formula 1 driver Lucas di Grassi. The 39-year-old Brazilian has been a prominent figure in the series since its inception in 2014, driving for the Audi-backed Abt team.
Di Grassi made an impressive start, winning the inaugural race in Beijing and establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with. He spent seven successful years with the team, during which he clinched the 2016-17 title and scored podium finishes of second and third place in the drivers’ standings on two occasions. Throughout his tenure, he achieved an impressive 12 victories.
Last year, the Brazilian driver made a move to join the Venturi squad, bringing his expertise to a new environment. However, his time with the team has come to an end, marking the end of a significant chapter in his Formula E career.
Di Grassi’s departure from the Mahindra Formula E team was announced recently, leaving fans and fellow drivers curious about the talented driver’s next move. As one of the established names in the championship, there is no doubt that his experience and skill will make him a sought-after asset for other teams aiming for success.
The unexpected change in teams opens up a world of possibilities for Lucas di Grassi. Will he find a new home within an already established team or will he dare to join a new and ambitious outfit, eager to make their mark in the electric racing series?
Only time will tell where di Grassi’s journey in Formula E will take him next. As the motorsport world eagerly anticipates his decision, one thing is certain – the departure of this seasoned driver from Mahindra marks the end of an era and the beginning of an exciting new chapter for di Grassi and his Formula E career.
