The TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team has announced that its current lineup of Andre Lotterer and Pascal Wehrlein will continue into the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
Andre Lotterer has been with Porsche in Formula E since the 2019/2020 campaign. The ultra-experienced 39-year-old, who became FIA World Endurance Champion in 2012, and is a three-time winner of the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours, has so far secured one pole position the Porsche 99X Electric.
At 26 years old, Pascal Wehrlein, DTM champion in 2015, is the youngster in the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team. He came to Formula E via Formula 1 three years ago and is now contesting his maiden season for Porsche. His best result so far is third place in Rome last April. In Puebla, he took Julius Baer Pole Position.
“We’ve made enormous progress as a team this season,” says Amiel Lindesay, Head of Operations Formula E, in the leadup to the Berlin E-Prix on August 14 & 15. “Andre and Pascal have made a significant contribution to this positive development. We’re pleased that we are continuing our successful path together in Season 8.”
“Despite some notable successes this season, we are yet to achieve all of our goals. That makes me all the more pleased that Porsche is giving me the chance to contribute to the further development of the team beyond the current season,” says Lotterer.
