On the ExCeL Circuit in the historic Docklands, he secured 10th place on Sunday.

Race 14
Having started the race from P21 after making a mistake in qualifying, André Lotterer worked his way up the order and gained nine positions with his Porsche 99X Electric – a remarkable feat given the lack of overtaking opportunities offered on the narrow ExCeL Circuit in the Docklands. However, despite his spirited drive, he missed out on scoring points with 12th place. His teammate Pascal Wehrlein tackled the race from P12 and, like in race 13 on Saturday, secured one point for his team after a solid performance.

Comments on the London E-Prix, Race 14
Florian Modlinger, Director Factory Motorsport Formula E: « In qualifying, Pascal narrowly missed out on getting into the duels. André made a mistake and had to start among the backmarkers. He then made up nine places in the race. That was a strong effort. Pascal also improved his position during the race. In the fight for P6, he became entangled in a duel that damaged his car. As a result, he couldn’t progress further up the field. We’re now focussing on the final races in Seoul. The track there is new terrain for us all. As always, we’ll prepare well and hope for a successful conclusion to the season. »

Pascal Wehrlein, Porsche works driver (#94): « That was a tough race. You could clearly see our weak points on this racetrack. It wasn’t easy for us to overtake, and that impacted our entire race. We have to improve in certain areas, then we’ll possibly see better results again. We couldn’t do more this weekend, but we know what we need to improve on for the future. »

André Lotterer, Porsche works driver (#36): « I definitely could have performed better in qualifying. I even think I could’ve reached the duels. But I touched the wall and had to start from P21. Although it’s really difficult to overtake on this narrow circuit, we fought our way up the order and made up nine positions. London was a tough weekend for us. We’ll now take a good look at what we can do better for Seoul. I’m looking forward to this new destination. »
