Daniel Abt to forego GP2 finale for Formula E in Malaysia this weekend


Daniel Abt will race for the Audi Sport ABT Formula E team in Putrajaya, Malaysia this weekend rather than in the GP2 Series finale at Abu Dhabi with Hilmer Motorsport.

That will leave a seat open alongside Jon Lancaster for the GP2 weekend.

Abt’s busy fall and winter continues with FE back in action this weekend for the first time since its series opener in Beijing September 13.

He also tested last month for Andretti Autosport’s IndyCar program. Andretti team boss Michael Andretti spoke highly of him, but no decision has been made yet regarding the team’s fourth car.
