Pascal Wehrlein confirmed as regular driver for Porsche in Formula E
Driver pairing decided for the 2020/21 season.
Pascal Wehrlein will contest the 2020/2021 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship for Porsche. The 25-year-old joins André Lotterer as a regular race driver for Season 7, in the process replacing Neel Jani.
Wehrlein has competed in 17 races in the fully electric series to date. He has picked up 72 points, secured a pole position and clinched a spot on the podium in his maiden season in 2018/19, when he finished second at the Santiago E-Prix.
Fritz Enzinger confirmed the move, as well as thanking Neel Jani for all his work towards the Porsche Formula E programme. "We are delighted to welcome Pascal to the Porsche family. He has gained a lot of experience in different race series at his young age, where he has always sparkled. We would also like to thank Neel Jani for his outstanding commitment. He played a significant part in the development of our Formula E project and thereby contributed greatly to the successes of the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team this past season. Neel will stay with Porsche. We will see him in action in future motorsport projects again very soon, which I’m very pleased about."
