Audi Sport has suspended Daniel Abt following his disqualification from round five of the ABB Formula E Race at Home Challenge in Support of UNICEF.
Audi Sport said in a statement: "Daniel Abt did not drive his car in qualifying and the race at the fifth event of the Race at Home Challenge on May 23 himself, but let a professional Sim-Racer do so.
Joo, Kyllä oikea kilvan ajo on eri asia. Vaikka onhan e-urheilukin nouseva trendi.Näissä huijaaminen tai pelleily on vähän sama kun ei ottaisi tosissaan vaikka TV-kanavien F1-kuskeille kisaviikonloppuina järjestämiä haasteita/kisoja. Tai alettaisiin niiden perusteella jakamaan potkuja.
“From today onwards I will no longer be part of Mahindra Racing. My interest was to finish the season but the current situation didn’t allow so.
Although the 25-year-old continues to act as the Ferrari F1 team development driver, it is thought that his Mahindra exit will pave the way for him to sign for the Porsche FE team.
If this transpires, it would likely be to replace 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours winner Neel Jani alongside five-time podium finisher Andre Lotterer.
