After a year as a Formula 1 test driver (2002), Japan became the centre of his life. Lotterer drove in Formula Nippon (today Super Formula) and Super GT in parallel, not appearing in Europe again until 2009. He’s a three-time winner in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and won the WEC World Championship title once. Parallel to this, the driver from Duisburg continued his formula career in Japan. In 2014, he had a short stint in Formula 1 and in 2017, Lotterer drove for Porsche in the LMP1 class. He has been active in Formula E since the 2017/2018 season. In the past two seasons, Lotterer achieved four podium finishes for DS Techeetah, was twice eighth in the driver standings and helped them win the team championship last season. In the 2019/2020 season, Lotterer is competing in Formula E with Porsche.
