Formula E: Di Grassi helmet cam records full-power lap at Donington

Audi Sport ABT’s Lucas di Grassi rode around Britain’s Donington Park last week with a GoPro camera attached to his helmet.

Above speeds of 200kph (124mph), the sound of the wind rushing by overcomes the sounds of the car, but it still remains the first time a Formula E onboard lap has been recorded at full power in dry conditions.

The e.dams Renault driver has only been beat once so far in last Friday’s test session by Audi Sport ABT driver Lucas di Grassi.

Aided by the removal of a temporary chicane, Audi Sport Abt’s Lucas di Grassi was able to top Sebastien Buemi’s Thursday time by 3.5 seconds.

The former pacesetter made sure to keep the Brazilian honest, however, finishing Friday just one tenth of a second shy of di Grassi’s time.
