Andre Lotterer has left the DS Techeetah FIA Formula E squad and will complete Porsche’s driver line-up for its maiden campaign in the series.

Lotterer, who helped Techeetah claim its first FE teams’ title at the recent 2018/19 season finale in New York, has been a Porsche factory driver since 2017 and will link back up with Neel Jani, who he raced alongside in the World Endurance Championship in 2017.

“I’m really looking forward to competing for Porsche in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in the 2019/2020 season," said Lotterer.

"I have been part of the Porsche family since 2017 and have lots of great memories of joint successes - particularly when working with Neel.

"We drove together in the Porsche LMP1 Team in 2017, and drove for Rebellion Racing in the WEC these past two years.

"It’s great that we will now be the driver pairing for the Porsche Formula E Team. I’m looking forward to the new task and to the future collaboration with the team.”

Lotterer scored four podium finishes in his two years at Techeetah, finishing eighth in the drivers’ standings in both seasons.

"Neel and André make the perfect driver pairing for Porsche’s works entry into Formula E," said Porsche motorsport vice president Fritz Enzinger.

"[Andre] has been a Porsche works driver for three years and knows the team and Neel really well. And we can only benefit from the experience that André will bring from the past two Formula E seasons.

"We are looking forward to entering our maiden season in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship for the 2019/2020 season with this strong driver pairing.”
