For Porsche it is not a concern that the German team has not yet been able to achieve the first victory in Formula E. However, the team boss, Amiel Lindesay admitted that the driver Andre Lotterer has been eager and hungry to win in the midst of several races this season.
“Andre is very quick and has a wealth of experience, however, I have the feeling he’s sometimes a little too hungry to get that first win,” he explained.
The New Zealander further said that Lotterer’s incidents of colliding with Stoffel Vandoorne in a battle for the lead in the inaugural race in Rome and knocking out 2015-16 champion Sebastien Buemi in Valencia were due to being too eager to secure the victory.
Recall that Lotterer gave Porsche its first pole position in Mexico City last season, in what was his fourth event in the series. However, the lack of race pace that has lasted until 2021 has affected the German.

The manufacturer is currently in seventh place in the standings midway through the 2021 season with less than half the points of the table leaders Mercedes and Jaguar Racing.
“We’ve shown that we can drive at the front. There are a few things that we need to do better in the second half of the season and we’re working hard to make that happen,” said Lindesay.
For the crew chief, the results will come for Porsche after a clean race weekend without accidents, something that has not happened in the first seven races of the campaign.
“We’ve started from the front row; we’ve shown strong qualifying performances and we’ve also underlined that we can be at the front in the race,” he concluded.
