Regular Porsche works driver Neel Jani and test and development driver Brendon Hartley have completed an extensive three-day test programme at the Circuit Calafat, in Spain, covering a total distance of more than 1,000 kilometres with the Formula E car.
More intensive tests are scheduled over the coming months for the Porsche Motorsport engineers and Formula E drivers ahead of Porsche’s entry in season 6 (2019/20) of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.
Speaking after the tests Neel Jani said: “It is hugely important to get as many kilometres as possible under our belt during the test phase for our Formula E race car and, in doing so, to gain valuable experience – particularly from a technical point of view. They have been very productive days. I am now looking forward to working with the team over the coming months, as we strive to get the very best out of the Porsche Formula E race car.”
Team Manager Amiel Lindesay added: “We are very happy with the Porsche Formula E tests at Calafat. We completed an extensive test programme and have laid the foundations for the coming months. The data generated will form a good basis. We will now analyse it in detail to be able to prepare as well as possible for the coming test work.”
