Pascal Wehrlein had a positive Formula E debut achieving a podium in his second ePrix. The results during his first season with Mahindra were really positive, but the bond between the two parties weakened in the ‘Season Six’. At the end, Wehrlein came close to claiming his first electric series win at least twiceHis sixth place in Mexico City being striking after being the leader and running out of energy in his final duel for the win with Lucas Di Grassi. Without achieving this success, Wehrlein and Mahindra decided to separate their paths in the middle of the 2019-20 season and the German did not compete with the brand again after the pandemic.
Shortly after, Pascal Wehrlein confirmed as official Porsche driver in Formula E in a project in which he will share the box with André Lotterer and with which he hopes to achieve his first triumph in the series: «I’ve been close to getting my first Formula E win a couple of times, one in Santiago de Chile and another in Mexico. It’s on my wish list for this year. I have very good memories of my time with Mahindra, some good results, a podium and a pole. Only the first victory is missing. The goal of Porsche is to win the championship, but first you have to win races. That is our first goal».

Along these lines, the German pilot added: «My best result was a second place, the same as for André Lotterer. We both want to win and achieve our first victory in Formula E to also achieve Porsche’s first victory in the series. In the end for them last year was all new. They had to gain experience for themselves and I think they have managed to overturn that in this year’s car. They have taken steps in the right direction, but it is true that the competition does not rest. Everyone is improving and it will not be easy. We are going to take all the steps to win».
