Porsche highly motivated to gain experience and score points in Santiago ePrix

Santiago E-Prix
round 3 of the 2019/2020 ABB FIA Formula E Championship




Following the successful season-opener in November, with a second place for Porsche works driver André Lotterer (D) at the Diriyah E-Prix (Saudi Arabia), the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team travels to Chile for round three of the 2019/2020 ABB FIA Formula E Championship full of confidence.



 The goal for the Santiago E-Prix on 18th January 2020 is to finish in the points and gain more valuable experience in the process.






Amiel Lindesay (Head of Operations Formula E)



Has the successful start in Saudi Arabia changed the goals for Porsche’s first season in Formula E?



“We saw at the Diriyah E-Prix that the Porsche 99X Electric is competitive and capable of mixing it with the front-runners. Over the course of the season, however, it will be important to perform consistently in qualifying and to finish in the points in every race.



These factors were key to success in recent Formula E seasons. We are confident that we have both the car and the team to succeed in this regard. Despite the positive start to the season, our goals remain the same; we are striving to get the maximum out of every race.”




What are the expectations of the race in Chile?



“Since Saudi Arabia, we have had enough time to examine our processes and to improve efficiency in certain areas. We will implement the findings we made at the coming race in Chile. We want to back up the success we enjoyed at the Diriyah E-Prix. Generally speaking, top-ten finishes and points are a realistic goal.”







Everything you need to know about the Santiago E-Prix



The format



Round three of Season 6 of the 2019/2020 ABB FIA Formula E Championship takes place in the centre of the Chilean capital, Santiago, in Parque O’Higgins. There is a short functional test (shakedown) on the eve of the race (17 January). Race day (18 January) starts with two free practice sessions; the first lasts 45 minutes, the second 30 minutes. In qualifying, the drivers are divided into four groups of six, based on the standings in the Drivers’ Championship.


André Lotterer is currently sixth, so starts in group one while Neel Jani, in 21st place, goes in group four. The drivers each have six minutes to set the best possible lap time. The fastest six drivers across all the groups then qualify for the 20-minute Super Pole. This decides who will start the race from the first, second and third row of the grid. The race lasts 45 minutes plus one lap.




The track



The 2.287-kilometre street circuit in Santiago is a classic Formula E track, with narrow sections, hairpins and eleven corners in total. Two striking features are a long left-hander (Turn 8) and a long straight.




The timings




Qualifying and the Santiago E-Prix will be broadcast on Eurosport.

Qualifying: Eurosport 1, 18 January 2020, 7:05 – 7:45 pm (CET)

Race: Eurosport 1, 18 January 2020, 7:45 – 9:00 pm, live (CET)
