Two points for Nissan e.dams in challenging Formula E Rome double-header
Nissan e.dams leaves Rounds 4 and 5 of the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship with two points after struggling to find a consistent set up for much of the weekend.
Last season the team took away 12 points from the Italian double-header. However, an unfortunate mixture of challenges during qualifying sessions and incident-strewn races compromised the performance of the Nissan Formula E cars, and the squad didn’t manage to achieve the results they were hoping for after the hard work done since the last event in Mexico.
In Saturday’s race, Sébastien Buemi qualified P17 and finished P16.
For Sunday’s round, Buemi qualified in P15 and Günther again in P16. The Nissan e.dams drivers fought hard to move forward, with Buemi grabbing P9 in the final moments of a frantic and entertaining race. Günther managed to cross the line in P11 despite having a puncture on the first lap which forced him to pit and re-join at the back.
"It has been an eventful race weekend and we come away with two points. This is not exactly what we were hoping for, but of course this is better than nothing. I am happy with those two points, and we will now work hard for the next race in Monaco to do our best. We have lots of data to look at to see where we can improve." Sébastien Buemi
