Techeetah’s Andre Lotterer has decided to leave the current champions of Formula E and head back to some more familiar routes at Porsche.
Lotterer has been at Techeetah alongside Jean Eric Vergne -who has just won back to back driver’s championship’s-, for the past two seasons. Sadly, Lotterer has had a lot of bad luck in Formula E, still yet to take his maiden win. He was in line for his first win in Hong Kong, before Sam Bird took him out on the final lap.
Both season’s at Techeetah have resulted in two 8th placed finishes in the driver’s standings. Lotterer will be hoping for bigger success at a team he is familiar with. “I’m really looking forward to competing for Porsche in the ABB FIA Formula E championship in the 2019/2020 season”
The German will be alongside his past teammate for the last three years at Le Mans in the name of Neel Jani.
In 2017, Lotterer had joined the Porsche LMP1 team, after Audi pulled the plug on their LMP1 program. Sadly for Lotterer, Porsche pulled out a year later meaning he only spent one year with the German outfit.
Lotterer has competed in many series which includes a CV of three Le Mans victories as well as competing in Formula One and Super Formula. As well as driving for Techeetah, Lotterer has been racing with Rebellion in their LMP1 program.
