Ahead of there testing schedule in preparation for the teams debut in late 2019, Porsche have confirmed Neel Jani as their first driver.
Jani who competed in the first race of Season 4 with Dragon will return to Formula E with the manufacturer he raced for in WEC.
“Without doubt, Neel is the right man for our new technologically trendsetting programme,” says Fritz Enzinger, Vice President Porsche Motorsport.
“Not only does he contribute speed, but he has a huge amount of single seater experience. He has already driven in Formula E and is well established in Weissach as a development driver.”
“Being part of an entirely new Porsche Motorsport programme for the second time, right from the beginning, means a lot to me.” Said Jani
“The technical and driving challenges are huge and our strong Formula E opponents have a significant advantage in experience. There is a lot of work ahead of us and I can’t wait for the roll-out.”
