Team took double top 10 at previous race in New York City
Nissan e.dams head to East London's historic Royals Docks and the ExCel London exhibition center for rounds 12 and 13 of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, the London E-Prix. This double-header event sees the all-electric street racing series return to the UK capital for the first time since 2016.
At the previous race in New York City, round 10, the Nissan e.dams squad scored 15 championship points and moved up to P9 overall. Buemi and his teammate Oliver Rowland showed strong single lap pace in New York and the team focus now is on building race pace as season seven of the championship accelerates into the last four races.
"We arrive in London with work to do," said Tommaso Volpe, Nissan global motorsports director. "Seb and Oli are showing good speed in qualifying, but our race pace is not where we want it. This is frustrating as our new Nissan Gen2 powertrain is clearly fast, so we are focusing hard on building our consistency. We want to put on a strong performance for the fans here in London, as the UK is like a second home to Nissan with our Sunderland plant building our all-electric Nissan LEAF since 2013. It's also Oli's home race."
Nissan races in this world championship to bring the excitement and fun of zero-emission electric vehicles to a global audience. As part of its goal to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations and the life cycle of its products by 2050, Nissan intends to electrify all-new Nissan vehicle offerings by the early 2030s in key markets. Nissan aims to bring its expertise in transferring knowledge and technology between the racetrack and road for better electric vehicles for customers.
