André Lotterer Joins the Porsche Formula E Team

Bringing more big-name appeal to the Formula E program, André Lotterer joins Neel Jani for Porsche’s maiden season in the growing category which starts later this year. His experience in Formula 1 and WEC prepared him well for the technical understanding and multitasking needed to excel in this highly complicated format. To turn quick laps while adjusting all manner of electric motor parameters is what’s required of a Formula E driver, and now he has a car to match his talent.

Lotterer is one of those versatile divers who manages to perform in whichever category they choose. A childhood of karting followed by an adolescence spent in formula cars earned him a role as an F1 test driver in 2002. He then left Europe to compete on Japanese soil in Super GT and Formula Nippon (now Super Formula), where he was immensely successful, then returned to race with Porsche in its WEC program in 2009. Since then, he’s won Le Mans thrice, Super GT twice, Formula Nippon twice, and a WEC title. That level of success in so many top-tier teams, as well as the ability to speak five languages, makes him a strong fit into any category.

Breaking into Formula E

He set his sights on a full season in Formula E in 2017. Techeetah gave him his first stab at the series that year, he achieved two podiums and placed eighth overall. He repeated the same performance for the 2018 season with DS Techeetah, and for the 2019 season, he’s moved into Porsche’s Formula E team.

With nearly two decades of professional racing experience, much of which he spent with Porsche, Lotterer will not have much difficulty adjusting to his new environment. With his ability to drive anything quickly, plenty of experience with complex cars, a bigger budget to play with, and four podiums in Formula E, his future in this series is bright.

Porsche LMP1 Aces Are Not Guaranteed A Seat In Formula E

Porsche has confirmed in a recent report by Motorsport.com that their six-driver LMP1 squad will likely not transition intact to the German sports car legend’s Formula E team when it kicks off during the 2018/2019 season.

As it stands, the current team of Timo Bernhard, Brendon Hartley, Earl Bamber, Andre Lotterer, Neel Jani, and Nick Tandy will remain under contract with Porsche for the 2018 season, regardless of the fact that they will be disbanding their LMP1 efforts in just a few weeks time.

According to various reports, and thanks to his connection to Red Bull, it would seem that Brendon Hartley’s full-season contract with Scuderia Toro Rosso in Formula 1 is all but a done deal. He’s a talented kid, and has proven himself in the most recent two races of the F1 season, so we don’t expect him to step into a Formula E car any time soon. Further, Neel Jani has already joined the Dragon Racing team, while Andre Lotterer has found himself aboard the Techeetah team in Formula E for the 2017/18 season.

If we were to place wagers, our bet would be on Porsche to put Neel Jani and Andre Lotterer in their two-car Formula E team for the 18/19 season. While it is most likely that Porsche would promote drivers from within the team, Andreas Seidl has confirmed that Porsche is also looking outside their own roster to fill the Formula E team seats. Bamber, Tandy, and Bernhard are all excellent sports car racers, and we could easily see them stepping back into a GT-based international program. Then again, there are the rumors of a Porsche Formula 1 team floating around to consider. As soon as we have more concrete information, we’ll be sure to bring you all of the Porsche motorsport driver moves as they happen.
