André Lotterer scores important points in Marrakesh
In the second Porsche 99X Electric, Neel Jani (CH) took the chequered flag at the Marrakesh E-Prix in 18th place. For the second time since his pole position in Mexico two weeks ago, Lotterer made it to the Super Pole in qualifying for the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team. In the competition for the six fastest drivers, he posted a time of 1:17.253 minutes to secure third place. After five out of 13 races, Lotterer now has 25 points and is twelfth in the drivers’ standings for the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. The TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team is ninth in the team championship, with the same number of points.
Reactions to the Marrakesh E-Prix
Amiel Lindesay (Head of Operations Formula E) : Our car was once again very strong in qualifying and the first half of the race went well too. Towards the end of the race, we had saved less energy than the cars around us which is why André (Lotterer) lost ground during the final two laps. We will take another look at that and analyse it carefully. Our aim for the future is to convert the strong qualifying performance into consistently good race results.
