News of the foul play hit the scene of Formula E sports racing. Daniel Abt, who raced under ABT Schaeffler Audi, was disqualified after allegations of cheating against him were confirmed this weekend.

Suspicions have been raised as to whether Abt was truly the driver behind the wheel of Saturday’s Formula E Race at Home Challenge, his competition being the first to raise the red flags. Fox Sports reported that two other runners, Jean-Eric Vergne and Stoffel Vandoorn, echoed each other regarding Abt when his performance in the Challenge seemed significantly different from previous results.

The organizers of the Formula E Race at Home Challenge investigated the allegations of Abt’s competitors and, after crossing the IP addresses, were able to confirm that the eSport racing driver had not driven at the time in question.

The official decision by Formula E on the matter led to the withdrawal of Abt’s sixth place in the Formula E Challenge Grid competition. While the fifth round of the Race At Home challenge was organized to support UNICEF, as noted in the tweet below, Abt was also hit with a mandatory donation of € 10,000.

The e-sport racing driver acknowledged the cheating and responded by posting a statement reported by The Race as follows:

“I would like to apologize to Formula E, to all the fans, to my team and to my fellow drivers for having called in outside help during the race on Saturday.

“I didn’t take it as seriously as I should have. I am particularly sorry about this because I know how much work has been put into this project by the Formula E organization. I am aware that my offense has a bitter aftertaste, but it was never intended with a bad intention. “

Lorenz Hoerzing, another professional racing simulator driver, was the driver who helped Abt during this debacle, and Hoerzing has since been banned from participating in future Formula E rounds due to what happened over the weekend -end last. ABT Schaeffler Audi did not comment independently on Abt being disqualified after cheating.

Formula E fans who wish to contribute to UNICEF’s appeal to raise funds for children affected by coronavirus can do so using this Tiltify link here. With £ 50,610 raised to date and counting in cash, we hope that the next round of the Race at Home challenge will be just as successful when it takes place this week without the participation of Abt.
