The TAG-Heuer Porsche ABB FIA Formula E Team scored a double points finish in race one of the London ePrix on Saturday with Andre Lotterer coming home in fourth place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
The points that I took away are good but I’m not entirely satisfied. I missed the attack mode and that cost me a podium spot. I was so close to the driver in front of me that I couldn’t see the line properly. As a result, I didn’t drive over one of them and had to try again. It’s a shame. Now we’ll focus on tomorrow.
Pascal Wehrlein in the second Porsche ended the race inside the top ten in tenth place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
Today didn’t go well for me. Qualifying was difficult. The track was still damp when I went out with my group. It gradually dried up and the following two groups had a clear advantage. The start of my race wasn’t particularly great either. One point is some consolation but I’ll attack again tomorrow.
Amiel Lindesay, Head of Operations Formula E:
“That was a good day for us. André put in a strong drive to make it into Super Pole with the fastest time. Unfortunately in the race, he missed one of the loops to activate attack mode and had to wait until the next lap to use the additional energy. That cost him a possible podium. Still, it was a good race for him. With Pascal, we need to see why he didn’t have the same speed as his teammate. All in all, having two cars in the points is a result we can build on in tomorrow’s race.
