After more than 30 years, Porsche made a return to top-flight single-seater racing in the 2019/20 season of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team are fighting fellow German giants Audi, BMW and Mercedes head-to-head for top honours in an FIA World Championship. Andre Lotterer is joined by Pascal Wehrlein, forming a formidable all-German line-up.
With one of the longest-standing track records in motorsport dating back to the 1950s, Porsche's entry into Formula E is the latest step in the German manufacturer's history. After its most recent success in endurance racing, including multiple victories in both LMP1 and GT categories, the marque turns to the all-electric racing series to ready the next generation of electric Porsche road cars.
Calling on a decade of experience in hybrid and electrified racing, after the marque launched its first hybrid racing car, the 911 GT3 R Hybrid in 2010, Porsche prepares to take on the most competitive line up in motorsport. Following its first hybrid race car, the road-going 918 Spyder hit the road in 2015, which in part formed the basis of the 919 Hybrid race car, in which Neel Jani and Andre Lotterer drove in the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Lotterer flew out of the blocks in Round 1 of the 2019/20 season, clinching the Stuttgart manufacturer's first podium with the 99X Electric. This was followed by three none-scores, but Lotterer was still able to showcase the 99X Electric's promise with a pole in Mexico City.
The German marque concluded their debut season with a commendable eighth in the teams' standings, following Lotterer's podium and a consistent points-scoring run in the final six rounds of the 2019/20 season in Berlin.
With their rookie campaign completed, Lotterer continues with TAG Heuer Porsche for an another shot at his elusive first Formula E victory and is joined by compatriot Pascal Wehrlein, completing the solid German trifecta as they seek the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship honours.
