Racing once again on the Red Hook Circuit in Brooklyn, New York – the venue for Nissan’s first Formula E race win, in season five – team drivers Sebastien Buemi and Oliver Rowland took P6 and P7 respectively in Saturday’s close-fought first race of the weekend’s double-header event, having qualified in P5 and P8. Buemi was fastest in group qualifying and ran as high as P3 in the race.

In Sunday’s race, round 11, tricky dry-to-wet conditions in group qualifying saw Buemi qualify in P13 and Rowland in P16. Another exciting race saw Buemi running as high as P9 before rear contact dropped him down the order with damage and he crossed the line in P15.

"A disappointing day today. I had a good start but then we struggled with the energy management. We need to look at all the data and understand where we went wrong, and then try hard to regroup for London. Yesterday was a better day, I had good pace in qualifying." Sébastien Buemi
