Once again André Lotterer managed to score a very good result during the Qualifying, getting in on the shoot-out for the Super-Pole. The Porsche driver performed well and could start from third place in the fast-paced race in Marrakech.
Good vibes in Marrakech.
Multiple factors play a role in the world’s first fully electric race series. Energy management is doubtlessly chief among them. The Tag Heuer Porsche Formula E Team expected a fast fifth race in Morocco – and that’s what happened. The battle for the top spots was tough and André Lotterer was in the thick of it: With a great start from third place, the Porsche pilot managed to closely tail the two other positions and faced fierce battles for a spot on the podium. Throughout a fast-paced race that progressed without any greater incidents, the Porsche pilot found a good rhythm, saved energy and still launched attacks on the second place – all right off the bat. But in the end, André Lotterer too had to sacrifice a few positions on the demanding course. Still, he managed to finish a good race among the Top 10: He was met with the checkered flag on eighth place.
Throughout the race, his team colleague Neel Jani could catch up on a few positions at the back of the group, managing to fully complete the E-Prix in Marrakech. Finishing the race on position 18, the second pilot of the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team finished among Top 20 and gained precious experience.

And the experience won in real race conditions will surely pay off in Rome – for that is where the next race of the season is due to take place.
Today in Marrakech the entire TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team along with its two pilots André Lotterer and Neel Jani proved it stays hungry once more. It was a good day for the team and as a result, there’s many positive things gained from the Imperial City. And the team is staying hungry for more …
