TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team returns to Mexico with good memories

Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez



At the Mexico City E-Prix, Porsche scored its first Formula E pole position in its 2020 debut season. On 12 February, the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team returns to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez – an extraordinary racetrack: The 2.606-kilometre circuit, which hosts race three of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, runs through the famous Foro Sol baseball stadium.



The TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team fields two Porsche 99X Electric in Mexico City. The all-electric racing cars featuring a Weissach-developed powertrain will be driven on the shortened Formula 1 circuit by André Lotterer (GER/#36) and Pascal Wehrlein (GER/#94).



This classic race weekend with just one race poses no less of a challenge for drivers and teams than the season-opening doubleheader event was. “We have very little time to sort certain things out, and there are no second chances,” says Florian Modlinger, Director Factory Motorsport Formula E. “We know we’re up against strong opposition, who we certainly don’t underestimate. Still, our clear goal is to fight for victory in Mexico.”





Q&A on the Mexico City E-Prix



Florian Modlinger, Director Factory Motorsport Formula E

The season-opening races in Diriyah were your first at the helm of the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team. How was it?
“It was great to see how hard the team worked through the night after race 1 to come back strong the next day. We analysed many things and came to the right conclusions. Looking ahead to Mexico and the rest of the season, I’m thrilled to be working with such a highly motivated team.”




What worked well in Diriyah and what didn’t? What was your main focus in preparing for Mexico?


“Essentially, the technical and operational aspects such as reliability, car preparation and the event procedures went well. What we need to improve on is the qualifying speed so that we can get both of our drivers into the shootout. Another important issue in race 1 was energy management. We managed to improve this significantly for race 2, but we still have a lot of work to do to find even more potential.”




What are your thoughts on the new regulations, particularly in qualifying and the additional race time after a safety car phase?


“The extra time worked really well in the first race. It didn’t work out in race 2 because the race finished with a late safety car phase. That was unfortunate for André and Pascal and denied them the chance of achieving a better result. I think the new qualifying mode is excellent. It’s not only fairer on the drivers but the one-on-one duels make it more spectacular for the spectators at the track and for TV viewers. All in all, a big improvement.”





The racetrack

The Formula E race will be contested on a shortened 2.606-kilometre version of the Formula 1 circuit in the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, a racetrack built in honour of Mexican racing legends Pedro and Ricardo Rodriguez. The 16-turn circuit lies at an altitude of 2.285 metres and is the only permanent racetrack on this season’s Formula E calendar.


The racetrack is virtually unchanged compared to season 6 when Formula E last raced in Mexico City. The corner combination at the end of the back straight is exceptional: it runs through the Foro Sol baseball stadium. “The race in Mexico has always been a great experience,” says André Lotterer. “The fans create a fantastic atmosphere and the track should suit our car well.”

The Porsche 99X Electric



Campaigning the Porsche 99X Electric, Porsche returned to open-wheel single-seater racing in 2019 after more than 30 years. The fully-electric racing car sporting the Weissach-developed Porsche E Performance Powertrain also serves as a development platform for the sports car manufacturer’s fully-electric production models.



Energy management and efficiency are important factors for success in Formula E and in the development of production cars. For the 2021/2022 season, the 99X Electric has a maximum output of 250 kW in qualification mode and 220 kW (last season 200 kW) in normal race mode. Attack Mode boosts the output to 250 kW (last season 235 kW). Maximum recuperation is 250 kW; the usable battery capacity is 52 Kilowatt-hours.




Porsche Taycan Turbo S as the new safety car



Porsche is committed to Formula E safety: With the all-electric Taycan, the sports car manufacturer supplies the official safety car this season and underlines the importance of Formula E for Porsche Motorsport. Thanks to its driveability and safety as well as an output of up to 560 kW (761 PS), Porsche’s first all-electric sports car is the ideal choice as a safety car in the first and only all-electric motorsport world championship.


With Launch Control, the flagship model of the Taycan range accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 260 km/h. The number 22 on the roof of the car is a salute to the 22 drivers who contest season 8 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. The striking paintwork incorporates the colours of all eleven competing teams as well as the FIA and Formula E colours.



The design symbolises the commitment of everyone involved and the common path towards the future of all-electric motor racing as well as visual expressions of social values such as diversity and community.
