Porsche earns best result of the season with 2nd place in Valencia
The TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team has achieved its best result so far this season at round 6 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in Valencia. André Lotterer delivered a strong performance on the Circuit Ricardo Tormo and claimed second place earning his first points of the season. This was Porsche’s second podium result of the season after Rome in the world’s first electric racing series. His teammate Pascal Wehrlein finished 18th on that race.
André Lotterer: “I’m thrilled with my podium placing. My first points at last. As a team, we deserved this result. We all work hard. Today we underlined that we can deliver a top performance even on a track that is somewhat atypical for Formula E. We’ve always been fast over one lap this season. This time we proved that we’re also efficient in energy management in the race. I really hope that we’ve now made a breakthrough.”
On the first race of the weekend, round 5 of the World Championship at the rainy Circuit Ricardo Tormo, despite both starting the day well on qualifying, the Porsche 99X Electric racing cars did not make it to the finish line due to race incidents and brake troubles.
This season, in which a driver and team world champion will be crowned for the first time, more automobile manufacturers compete than in any other racing series. As such, the races are fascinating and fiercely contested.
