Daniel Abt was racing Oliver Rowland and Stoffel Vandoorne for the race win during this weekend’s Formula E online battle. At least that is what they thought because after the race it turned out it wasn’t Daniel Abt himself behind the wheel.
He had put simracer Lorenz Hoezring in his seat and made him race with his name and covered his face in the camera shot. When the organisation found out he got disqualified and fined 10,000 dollars.
