Nissan e.dams is going back to Mexico City for the fourth round of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. Hoping to build on their momentum at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit, team drivers Sebastien Buemi and Oliver Rowland will once again return to the high-altitude track on February 15 this year.
Last year, Rowland posted the fastest time of all drivers in group qualifying before he won fourth fastest in his Super Pole session.
“I really enjoyed the last race in Mexico City. I felt good, the car was fast, and the racing was close and competitive. A great race for the fans to watch,” Rowland said. “I feel like I have some unfinished business, coming so close to a podium or better last season, so I’m focusing hard on a strong performance. The ingredients are all there for us to run well.”
This victory has put the team in high spirits, including Nissan’s global motorsports director, Michael Carcamo.
“The drivers put in brilliant performances in Mexico last season,” Carcamo said. “The guys really enjoy the track, and our cars were fast.”
Nissan is once again competing in the all-electric Formula E series to showcase its EV technology. Sharing its Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision to racing fans around the world, those attending will experience first-hand Nissan LEAF electric car’s zero-emission in the E-Village near the track.
The Mexico City circuit has many challenging corners that drivers need to navigate around. It requires constant focus on energy management as they accelerate at full power many times over.
“The extra power will perhaps be more important than ever in Mexico, so we call on our fans to support us by voting for Sebastien and Oliver,” said Gregory Driot, Nissan e.dams team principal. “We had incredible pace in Mexico last season, and we’re determined to deliver another strong performance this time.”
