Top 10 finish for Buemi and Nissan e.dams in Mexico City
The long-awaited return to the vibrant Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez and its legendary Foro Sol saw an action-packed day of wheel-to-wheel racing in front of colourful, cheering crowds, providing some of the most spectacular views on the racing calendar. While the pace was quick in the practice sessions, a couple of mistakes compromised the team's qualifying. Both drivers failed to make it through to the duels, resulting in Günther starting the race from P10 and Buemi from P18.
The thrilling race saw multiple changes of positions across the whole field but was ultimately decided on the very last lap. Both Nissan e.dams drivers benefitted from the team's energy management strategy, which allowed them to keep up the pace for the one extra lap that other competitors did not anticipate. Sébastien finished this race in 8th place after a good recovery from P18.
The team will now look ahead to the upcoming Formula E double-header in Rome on 09 and 10 April 2022.
"Overall, it was a very good day for us. We demonstrated that we have good pace, especially in the practice sessions, but unfortunately qualifying didn't go too well for me. The race was good, though; I started in P18 and finished in P8, so I'm very happy with that. We just need to make sure that we get better qualifying positions. Overall, I'm very happy with our performance. I'd like to thank the team as they have done a great job, and I can't wait to go to Rome very soon." Sébastien Buemi
