Andre Lotterer said he sees his 24 hours of Le Mans comeback as a “long-term” goal as the German’s top priority is his commitment to Formula E.

Lotterer drives for Porsche in the Formula E World Championship, and the German had expressed his desire to race with the iconic brand at the 24 hours of Le Mans. However, as Porsche comitted to the Endurance series, Lotterer now says his top priority continues to be Formula E, and that the 24 hours is now a “long-term” goal.

“It’s not on my mind right now, but I’m a Porsche driver and they announced the [LMDh project], so I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to do it,” Lotterer told “It’s one of my dreams to win Le Mans for Porsche, it would be something quite special.

“We got close in 2017 and then as we all know Porsche pulled out and I joined Formula E. Now we are together again, I would love to join, but it’s a long term thing [going back to Le Mans] and there are big challenged ahead in Formula E.

“I’m still committed to Formula E, I invested a lot of time and energy in the project and the program is still young. We have big targets also for the third year, so this is something I’m putting a lot of energy into,” he concluded.
