Audio sport have decided to suspend Daniel Abt after it was found he used a professional simracer to race for him during the Formula E Race From Home event on May 23rd 2020.
While the official statement uses the word “suspension” it is understood that this will start the process of Abt being removed form the Audi Sport team and eco-system,
He was disqualified from the event initially and given a $10,000 fine, which would go to support UNICEF.

“Integrity, transparency and consistent compliance with applicable rules are top priorities for Audi – this applies to all activities the brand is involved in without exception.
“For this reason, Audi Sport has decided to suspend Daniel Abt with immediate effect.”
