In Saturday’s second race, Buemi demonstrated the performance of the season six updated Nissan e.dams when he qualified on the front row. His progress in the race sadly was hindered after being hit from behind and spun during the opening laps while running in second place.
“Sadly, the weekend didn’t go as planned for me. Qualifying on the front row for round two was very pleasing, but after getting hit, it ruined my day. The Formula E races are so short that if you get a set-back like that is very hard to fight back. I’m obviously very disappointed, but the positive takeaway from the weekend is the Nissan e.dams cars had strong speed. We now need to concentrate on turning that speed into results when we get to Chile early in the new year.”
