wow that's great news! Di Grassi did everything he needed to be in F1 he was the best of his pack but unfortunately all others including Maldonado, Grosjean, Bruno payed their way into F1 and this great driver without the backing was left behind after one year. Kudos to Audi for still believing in talent over money I'm sure Di Grassi will have a long career with Audi hopefully making his way to DTM!

Long career at Audi?! So far he only has a one race deal as the story says. He might not be that much interested in sports cars. Audi just saw a great marketing opportunity that's why they have him for the race, and he's already plenty fast.

The rest would depend on how much interest he has in sports cars and how well he can work with other drivers, since he has to share the car. Audi wants career sports car endurance drivers that's why they're successful.

Peugeot had mostly F1 and single-seater minded sprinters.
