Lotterer found it “difficult to enjoy” the start of his Formula E career

Despite being one of the most experienced racing drivers on the current Formula E grid, racing in series such as the World Endurance Championship and previously winning the Super Formula Championship, Andre Lotterer confessed that the jump into Formula E “took time [in order] to feel at home and confident with everything”.
