Team spirit in Formula E: A key to success

In signing André Lotterer as the second Porsche Formula E driver alongside Neel Jani, the Porsche works team has filled another key role. The two drivers for Porsche’s debut season in the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship have now been confirmed. As well as the two regular drivers, the works team is also assembling in the background and preparing for the first Formula E race in November of this year.


Formula E sets clear requirements with regard to the team at the racetrack. To run two Formula E cars, 20 team members are permitted on site. This does not include top management and such departments as marketing and press. The limited numbers mean processes must be scrutinised intensely and people assigned two or three different roles. When it comes to technology, however, there are no limits restricting the works team in Weissach. Research may be, and should be, uninhibited at this site.


Amiel Lindesay (Team Manager): “As far as our drivers are concerned, we have a very good starting position for Porsche’s works entry in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship with Neel and André on board. It is very important to integrate both regular drivers in the preparations early on in proceedings so the team can collaborate fully with the two drivers. Many new challenges await us in our first season in Formula E. The limited number of people at the racetrack is certainly one of these challenges. In recent months, many scenarios have been tried out at tests and in Weissach, which in turn has allowed the team to acquire valuable knowledge that it can apply to its oper-

ations. As a team, we are very well positioned and have outstanding engineers and mechanics on board, the majority of whom have been involved in the previous LMP1 project. Team spirit has always been a very important factor at Porsche, without which the many successes we have enjoyed in the past would not have been possible. We are optimistic that we can make a difference in Formula E as a team.”
