It is the name of a young man from Kempten in the Allgäu: The son of racing stable owner Hans-Jürgen Abt and nephew of the racing driver Christian Abt is part of a motorsport-enthusiastic family, which is also very successfull with their tuning company Abt Sportsline off the race tracks. With his first both victories in the Formula E and the most fastest race laps in the season 2017/18, Daniel Abt has finally achieved the breakthrough: The modelcars of the Audi e-tron FE04 from the team Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler remind to the victory at the BerlinEprix.

But let us now look on its driver, Daniel Abt: Here an autograph, there a selfie and always time for a short conversation with the fans - that's how the fans experience the German, who loves and lives the Formula E. Daniel Abt forms a team with Lucas di Grassi since his debut in the racing series in September 2014 and is one of the most popular pilots because of his manner. "I like the special spirit, which rules in the Formula E - not only between the teams, but also between us drivers and the fans in the world. That is unique." Indeed he counts to the youngest pilots in the field with vintage 1992, his Vita already has a long and successful career: After years in the cart Abt achieved 2009 already in his second real motorsport season, the title in the ADAC Formula Masters and in the following year, the runner-up in the German ATS Formula 3 Cup.
It was followed by the Formula 3 Euro Series and 2012 the GP3 Series, which will be held in the context of Formula 1. Until the last weekend Abt fought for the title here and eventually became runner-up. Abt then started at individual races in the strong PS Formula Renault 3.5 and then completed two seasons in the GP2, which is located directly below the Formula 1. In addition, Abt joined the 2016 ADAC GT Masters for the family racetrack and reached the 19th place in the drivers' standings. In 2016/17, Abt completed his third Formula E season, finishing in eighth place overall. While Abt was a bit overshadowed by his team mate in the first three seasons of the Formula E and was more and more attentive to his successes, he is now one of the favorites on every race day.
"I'm pretty sure that the first victories of Daniel were just the beginning", says team chief Allan McNish. And also the young German feels ready for the next step. "I have ticked off the next stage goal with the victories. Now I want to be constantly ahead and if possible fighting about the titel." Unforgotten in the fourth season is Daniel Abt's perfect raceday in Berlin, where he got the pole in his home run. He won the race with a start-goal-victory and also drove the fastest lap in the role model of our modelcar of the FE04. More is not possible. But that's not all, what makes Daniel Abt: When not sitting in the cockpit or discussing the next steps with his mechanics and engineers, Daniel Abt is often seen in the paddock with a camera in his hand.

There he does not only take the fans behind the scenes of the Formula E, but also presents the news of Abt Sportsline.
