Nissan e.dams drivers Sebastien Buemi & 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 November the 22nd & 23rd. It will continue through cities including Santiago, Chile; Mexico City; Hong Kong; Rome; Paris; Seoul; Berlin & New York before concluding with another double-header in London on July the 25th & 26th next year.
Buemi & 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 & placed second in the driver’s championship. Rowland scored more points than any other rookie.
Michael Carcamo, Nissan’s global motorsports director said :
“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. Oliver proved to be a very fast learner & 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.”
