Nissan e.dams’ record-setting drivers to return for new Formula E season

YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan e.dams drivers Sebastien Buemi and Oliver Rowland will return for the next season of the Formula E electric street racing series after a record-setting debut run.

The duo will continue to demonstrate the power and performance of Nissan’s zero-emission electric vehicle technology during season six of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. The season kicks off with a double-header in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Nov. 22-23. It will continue through cities including Santiago, Chile; Mexico City; Hong Kong; Rome; Paris; Seoul; Berlin and New York before concluding with another double-header in London on July 25-26 next year.

Buemi and Rowland set a series qualifying record with six pole positions in 13 races during season five, as Nissan joined the championship to showcase its Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies. Buemi went on a late-season charge with four consecutive podiums and placed second in the driver’s championship. Rowland scored more points than any other rookie.

“Sebastien’s run to second place in season five and his attitude as a team player, made him an easy choice for our season six lineup,” said Michael Carcamo, Nissan’s global motorsports director. “Oliver proved to be a very fast learner, and we quickly got used to seeing his name at the top of the time sheets. There’s no doubt we have an outstanding driver combination.”
