Nissan e.dams races hard at challenging Formula E London races
Nissan e.dams drivers Oliver Rowland and Sebastien Buemi showed strong qualifying pace at rounds 12 and 13 of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, London E-Prix this weekend.
The teams raced for the first time on the new ExCeL Circuit in London’s iconic Royal Docks, with the track running 25 per cent inside the ExCeL London exhibition center building; a first for top-level international motorsport. Mixed conditions throughout the weekend challenged the drivers and both races returned plenty of action for the fans.
Buemi lined up in P3 for Saturday's Round 12. However, a disqualification for a technical infraction excluded both Nissan team cars from the Round 12 points, with Buemi crossing the line in P4. Race incidente and time penalties in round 13 prevented the team from scoring any points.
“Great to put the car on P3 for the race on saturday, but our team mistake meant we didn’t score any points. We ran well in the race on sunday and battled hard, but an unfortunate racing incident put us out of the points. We had some good pace over the weekend, so we will fight hard in Berlin.” Sébastien Buemi
