Lotterer joins Dennis at Andretti

Andre Lotterer will make the switch to Porsche-powered Andretti Autosport for the 2023/23 Formula E season, alongside British driver Jake Dennis.

Lotterer had been with the Porsche factory outfit with Pascal Wehrlein since 2019-20 and managed a best of eighth in the Championship with the German manufacturer in his first season. He finished 17th in 2020-21 and 12th in 2021-22. He took four podiums for Porsche.

Prior to this Porsche stint, he spent two years with DS Techeetah and helped them to the 2018-19 Teams’ Championship as he claimed four podiums for them.

Lotterer’s move to Andretti means he remains with Porsche power in Formula E albeit not with the factory team as he takes Oliver Askew’s place at the team. Askew endured a difficult debut campaign, finishing 16th as Dennis claimed sixth place with four podiums.

Discussing his move to Andretti, Andre Lotterer, Driver, said: “I’m excited to be joining Avalanche Andretti FE for Season 9 and the start of the Gen3 era. Working together with Jake will be a great combination to continue to push the team to the front of the field in Formula E.”

Michael Andretti, CEO and Chairman, Andretti Autosport, added: “We’re always building to be at the front of each series we compete in. André is bringing a wealth of experience to Avalanche Andretti and is another step in creating a team that can challenge for wins and the World Championship. We are looking forward to him joining alongside Jake to create a competitive and exciting line up.”

Roger Griffiths, Team Principal, Avalanche Andretti Formula E, said: “Andre’s experience, performance and energy will be a great addition to our team and our aim to challenge the front of the field in the series. With Jake as his teammate, we believe we will have a brilliant driver partnership to lead us in the series and help our team to continue to grow with our fans and sponsors.”
