Andre Lotterer Career

Lotterer won the German and British Formula 3 Championships on his way to becoming Jaguar Racing’s Formula One test driver in 2002. With Eddie Irvine retiring and Pedro de la Rosa leaving, he was passed up for a racing seat in 2003, as the team chose Mark Webber and Antônio Pizzonia instead.

Lotterer scored a point at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodrguez Circuit in a one-off Champ Car event for Dale Coyne at the end of 2002. He then moved to Japan, where he won the Super GT Championship in 2006 & 2009 and the Formula Nippon (now Super Formula) Championship in 2011.

Lotterer debuted in the FIA Formula E Championship with the DS Techeetah Formula E Team at the start of the 2017-18 season and is currently driving for the Tag Heuer Porsche Formula E team.

Lotterer also made his Le Mans debut in 2009 as a race week fill-in driver for the Kolles privateer Audi team. After third driver Narain Karthikeyan dislocated his shoulder in a non-racing-related accident, Lotterer and co-driver Charles Zwolsman Jr. drove the entire race individually. Lotterer and Zwolsman finished seventh overall and in the LMP1 class, driving an Audi R10, the car that won the 2006, 2007, and 2008 Le Mans races.

His outstanding performance that year won him a drive in the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans with the factory Audi Sport team, driving the new Audi R15 TDI Plus. Despite rival Peugeot 908s dominating the initial portion of the race, he finished second overall and in the LMP1 class with Marcel Fässler and Benoît Tréluyer.

Andre Lotterer Biography

He stayed with Audi Sport for the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans, driving the newly built Audi R18 with Marcel Fässler and Benoît Tréluyer. Following the loss of two of the Audi works cars due to accidents, Lotterer, and his co-drivers held off three works Peugeot 908s to capture both first place in the LMP1 class and the overall victory, beating the second-place Peugeot by just 13 seconds. This victory earned Audi ten overall victories at Le Mans and Lotterer his first overall victory.

Lotterer drove for Audi Sport Team Joest in the FIA World Endurance Championship with the Audi R18 from 2012 to 2016. Lotterer joined Porsche as the driver of the No. 1 car, alongside 2016 World champion Neel Jani and Nick Tandy, after Audi Sport Team Joest chose not to compete in the WEC in 2017.

Lotterer returned to the series in 2023, driving the #6 Porsche Hypercar alongside Kevin Estre and Laurens Vanthoor. After competing in the series for the last time in 2019, Lotterer claimed he felt “a stranger” after nearly four years away. Lotterer was Jaguar Racing’s reserve driver for the 2002 Formula One season. From 2000 to 2003, he also reviewed Jaguar F1 cars.

He took Kamui Kobayashi’s seat in the Caterham F1 team for a one-off 2014 Belgian Grand Prix race. He qualified 21st, ahead of teammate Marcus Ericsson, but his race lasted only one lap before a mechanical problem ended his F1 debut. He was invited to race again at the Italian Grand Prix. Still, he turned it down because the team planned to run Roberto Merhi in the vehicle for the first practice session, despite his wish to participate in all possible running due to his lack of experience.

Lotterer was scheduled to leave Formula E at the conclusion of the 2021-22 season. Instead, he joined Andretti Autosport’s Formula E Team, Avalanche Andretti, to team with Jake Dennis and replace the departing Oliver Askew. Lotterer finished the season in 18th position, scoring only 23 points, a far cry from teammate Dennis’ 229 points, which won the season. Lotterer announced his departure from the competition on September 8, indicating that he will concentrate completely on the FIA World Endurance Championship.
