Porsche has retained both Pascal Wehrlein and Andre Lotterer for the 2022 Formula E season, keeping the same pair for their second year.
Porsche made its Formula E entry in 2019/20 season with Neel Jani and Lotterer as its drivers, but hired Wehrlein for its second year, while retaining the German. Despite speculations, the current pairing will continue for another year in 2022.
Together they have scored 116 points for Porsche to be eighth, with several points finishes but only two podium places. We’ve made enormous progress as a team this season,” said Amiel Lindesay, Porsche, Head of Operations Formula E.
“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.” At the same time, long-serving Lotterer stated: “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.” And finally, Wehrlein added: “As a newcomer to the team, I felt very welcome and comfortable from the get-go. We achieved a lot in our first season together and have firmly established ourselves in Formula E. I’m very happy that I can be a part of this great team in the future.”
