Originally in partnership with legendary German manufacturer Audi, the championship-winning ABT Sportsline team were one of the longest-serving teams on the grid. They kicked off with a victory in the very first race back in Beijing, 2014.
With the familiar driving pairing of Lucas di Grassi and Daniel Abt, ABT found themselves in the championship hunt from the very start. The inaugural season saw di Grassi in the running ending the season in third for both driver and team in the respective standings.
Di Grassi continued to keep ABT and Audi at the sharp-end, second in both the Team and Drivers' standings, with di Grassi putting in a season-long battles to come within just a couple of points of the top prize.
The following season would see di Grassi take the top driver honours with another hotly-contested battle across the season and it was another second in the team standings. ABT's best collaborative team performance came in Season 4, the ABT/Audi partnership bearing fruit by just two points to take the Teams' trophy.
Audi and ABT departed from the series at the end of Season 7, with an impressive haul of stats: 14 wins and 47 podiums alongside their Teams' and Drivers' title success.
These performances ensure that ABT still feature heavily in the top overall stats as one of the most successful teams - can they continue to rack up solid finishes with Mahindra powertrains and Robin Frijns and Nico Mueller in the cockpit?
