Pascal Wehrlein, Porsche works driver
TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team #94
How happy are you with the season opener and what’s your focus for the next races?
“We got off to a fantastic start. I’m very pleased with how things went in Mexico. Before the weekend, no one in the team was completely sure how our performance would stack up against the competition.
In Mexico, the squad was rewarded for all the effort they put into the new car and into preparing for the season.
There’s definitely still a lot more potential to find in the cars as the season progresses and, during this very normal process, we need to make sure that we maintain our top ranking.”
What worked particularly well in the first race with the new Porsche 99X Electric Gen3 and where do you still see potential?
“The entire race weekend in Mexico ran flawlessly. As a result, the starting setup for our new car was virtually perfect. We just had to make a few tweaks and so were fully competitive from the first free practice.
One can also find room for improvement and even more performance in a new car. We learn something every day and I’m sure we’ll succeed in this.”
