Neel Jani switching to the cockpit of a Formula E car

Description

Porsche continues to gain momentum ahead of its ABB FIA Formula E Championship entry: Neel Jani has been signed as the first driver. With the experienced Swiss racer on board, the new works team will begin track testing early in 2019 to prepare for the worldwide, fully electric single seater series’ sixth season, which kicks off in December 2019. Porsche is eagerly awaiting the arrival of the first standardised chassis to install its in-house-developed drive train, which has already been on the test benches. Jani has been a Porsche works driver since 2013. At the wheel of the Porsche 919 Hybrid he took outright victory at Le Mans in 2016 and became FIA World Endurance Champion the same year. Between 2014 and the end of 2017, the 35-year-old won four races in the 919 while securing nine pole positions and four fastest race laps. In 2018 he smashed the track record at Spa-Francorchamps (BE), where he beat the then Formula One benchmark with the 919 Hybrid Evo. Jani began his career in single seaters, climbing up to Formula One as a test driver.

  • Scott Dixon Discusses Future Races

    According to Autosport.com, "Scott Dixon says he and Ganassi have no choice but to take a more aggressive approach in terms of aiming for race wins, as his IndyCar title hopes faded in Detroit. "We've got nothing to lose now, right?" Dixon told the press, "We'll just be going for the win - and that's not just the second race here but all the races now. And that's kind of fun - fun for the driver and fun strategy-wise for the guys in the team. We've had similar deficits before and we've clawed it back and got back in the championship hunt. We've just got to do it again. There's still 10 races to go."
