Stoffel Vandoorne, 2022 Formula E World Champion

Very excited to be in Portland this weekend. 

With four races left, it is very important for us to achieve points. Portland is a great opportunity as it is a wide and rapid track, especially for overtaking. The ambiance here is very special, we enjoy racing in Portland as the American fans are incredibly passionate and we want to deliver and lead the show.

I keep my head down, keep working hard with the team and my main objective is to put myself in the best conditions to score valuable points this Saturday and Sunday.’


Jean-Éric Vergne, 2018 & 2019 Formula E Champion

‘Portland E-Prix, the penultimate venue of this season 10! The team has been hard at work to draw learning from our performance and unlock more pace. As a Franco-American team, this is our home race and we want nothing less than to bring our cars in the front of the pack. The Portland International Speedway is an amazing track, with a mix of low-speed corners and high-speed straights. We arrive fully prepared after spending time in the simulator and believe me I am going to push to turn things around this weekend!’
