Nissan e.dams retains Sebastien Buemi and Oliver Rowland for 2019/20 season
Nissan e.dams has confirmed that it will field an unchanged driver line-up in the 2019/20 Formula E championship, retaining Sebastien Buemi and Oliver Rowland.
Buemi, the 2015/16 champion, finished runner-up last season, delivering Nissan’s maiden victory in the New York finale.
He has been present in the championship since its inception in 2014, and has been with e.dams throughout, remaining part of the team through its transition from Renault to Nissan.
Rowland joined the championship last season and placed 10th overall, taking two pole positions and two runners-up positions.
“We had good pace in season five, and I hope to build on that momentum,” said Buemi.
“There are some new manufacturers joining in season six, but we have much more experience now as a team, and that’s going to make us more competitive.”
It has not yet been determined whether Buemi will compete in Formula E or in the World Endurance Championship during the respective clashes.
“I had a great first season, but now it’s time to prepare properly for my second year and come back even stronger,” said Rowland.
“I came into season five with very little experience, but I think I adapted quite well. I felt very comfortable on the team, and I had a lot of support from everyone.
“My first season with Seb was terrific. I learned a lot from him. I hope we can both push each other and push the team more.
“I’ll also have a lot more time to prepare and work with the team to understand how to get the car even more to my liking. I think it’ll make a big difference. I want to be even more competitive this season and start winning races.”
