MARRAKESH: An action-packed final lap of the recent ABB FIA Formula E Championship Marrakesh E-Prix saw Nissan e.dams driver Sebastien Buemi chasing down the top three.
At the checkered flag, the Swiss racer took fourth position in car #23, just two-tenths behind third place, having started sixth. British driver, Oliver Rowland completed a strong top 10 result crossing the line ninth in car #22. The Nissan e.dams squad scored 14 championship points, taking them to fourth overall in the 12-team manufacturer standings.
“Historically we run well here at the Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan,” said Michael Carcamo, Nissan global motorsports director. “Seb’s fourth consecutive Super Pole qualifying appearance today tells us that our baseline pace is good, so to pull all the elements together and, for the second race in a row, score strong team points is certainly satisfying.”
Nissan is using Formula E to demonstrate the power and performance of its zero-emission EV technology, and to share its forward-looking Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision for changing how cars are driven, powered and connected with society.
“Seb was close to P3, and we were one of two teams with both cars in the top ten. This is very positive,” said Olivier Driot, Nissan e.dams team principal. “As we look ahead, we are scoring consistent points, qualifying well and moving in the right direction in the championship.”
