11th August 2017. From the first tests at Donington in summer 2014 to Lucas di Grassi’s title win less than two weeks ago: ABT Sportsline has experienced an exciting time in Formula E. The film ‘This one moment’ portrays the road the team around Daniel Abt and the new champion has travelled – with all the ups and downs as well as the most emotional and humorous moments.
“We are proud to have been part of the Formula E family from day one and to have left our mark. The title win is obviously the absolute highlight of these three years,” says Team Director and CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt. “The film provides memories of many wonderful as well as a few tough moments in recent years. It is intended to pay tribute to the success of the whole squad and is also a way of saying thank you to our partners and fans that always supported us so tremendously.”
Responsible for editing the film which is about twelve minutes long and shows many previously unpublished pictures is ZE-Media GmbH in Munich. Eric Engesser and his team have accompanied Formula E and Team ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport at close range since the first season, now portraying the team’s journey to date in ‘This one moment’.
‘This one moment’ by the way premiered before the two decisive final races in Montreal – albeit in a different, unfinished version. During a team get-together on Thursday night the drivers, mechanics and engineers got to see the pictures up to and including the races in New York.
“The way the film will end is now in our own hands, so let’s all make history together,” Sport Director Thomas Biermaier had encouraged his squad. It turned out to be a happy ending.
