In the case where the charge of the particle is small compared to its mass, we describe the asymptotics of the Lorentz-Maxwell equation (Abraham model) for any finite-energy data. As time goes to infinity, we prove that the speed of the particle converges to a certain limit, whereas the electromagnetic field can be decomposed into a soliton plus a free solution of the Maxwell equation. It is the first instance of a scattering result for general finite energy data in a field-particle equation.
