Di Grassi signs full LMP1 deal with Audi
20 December 2012 – Ex-Formula 1 driver Lucas di Grassi has signed a full-time LMP1 deal with Audi for the 2013 season, having performed well for the team during a sole World Endurance Championship (WEC) outing at his home circuit of Interlagos earlier this year.
The 28-year-old, who finished ahead of then team-mate Timo Glock in his sole F1 season, will join Loic Duval, Marcel Fassler, Marc Gene, Oliver Jarvis, Tom Kristensen, Andre Lotterer, Allan McNish and Benoit Treluyer in Audi's 2013 driver line-up.
Specific driver line-ups and entries are yet to be revealed by Audi, but the squad is due to field two cars in next year's World Endurance Championship. The German marque will again contest the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans with three cars.
