I don't know the audio-setting from the camera (in this case a lumix). The audiofile is recorded with 44,1 KHz.
ok, i've seen, the audio-setting ist 48 KHz. How can I resample the audiofile? Or what should I do?

best-practice is indeed, to use 48kHz ...
(I never noticed issues with shorter, a few minutes long clips)
use any converter/audio processor to resample your audio file BEFORE import into FCPX.
another reason for no-synch could be:
does your export frame-rate match the Project frame-rate?

I'm a little bit confused. Few weeks ago I've cut a video with 5 cameras and one audiotrack. Multiclip works very well and I have no problems with the synchronisation of the audio. It was not easy to match the length of the audio and video tracks, so i played with the length in an extra audio editor.
Finally the result in FCPX timeline an the finished video are same. I've used a mp3-audiotrack. Should be this the differenz?

… Should be this the differenz?
I don't know what you've done exactly …
best-practice-advice for FCPX is still:
• avoid using mp3, use aiff
• avoid sample-rates other than 48kHz
FCPX does marvel in handling diff. video-'formats', audio isn't its main domain.
so, why not perform a 10sec task, and convert your audio material in a recommended format?
keep in mind: mp3 could mean variable bitrates - keep that in synch with a probably diff. time-base …-
I've done a few 'music videos' so far, no rocket sience as long as you stay within the specs/limitations of the application. we playback music from a CD while recording video. we use same CD as 'master track' in FCPX (in some cases we don't even resample, no synch issues so far). we use the 'live'-audio from the cams to synch multi-cam = a snap!, although takes are 'orphanized' = just isolated seconds of the whole piece.-
a good edit starts BEFORE recording .......
means: make a plan, organize what when and how material is needed.
I'm no fan of trial-and-error-editing

Well, if you Retime the music track it will absolutely not be in sync!
Retime means: stretch or push together THE SAME DATA for shorter or longer times.
If you need to 'fit' your audio track, you need to Cut/Trim it, Not Retime it.. !
