Nissan e.dams will be retaining the services of Sebastian Buemi and Oliver Rowland for the seventh Formula E 2021 Season, that will be the the first FE season to be conducted as FIA World Championship in 2021.
Sebastian Buemi has been driving for Nissan e.dams since its debut in the 2014 Formula E Season while Rowland joined the team in the 2019 Season 5 of the Formula E Championship as he came in as a late replacement for current Redbull Formula 1 driver, Alexander Albon who at the time joined Toro Rosso, the junior Redbull F1 team.
In the two seasons the Nissan e.dams drivers have been in the team, they have secured six pole positions, 11 podium finishes and two race victories as they also secured the runners up spot in the 2020 season 6 teams championship.
“Seb and Oli have done a great job for us,” said Nissan Global Motorsports Director, Tommaso Volpe. “We welcome the stability and consistency that retaining them brings to the team.
“We look forward to building on our previous successes. However, winning is not our only goal in Formula E.
“With each race we learn more about every aspect of our high performance EVs, which then informs our road car development. Through racing, we are continuously advancing our EV expertise.”
With the announcement of Buemi and Rowland, Nissan e.dams confirmed the retention of Mitsunori Takaboshi who will remain as the team’s Reserve Driver while Jann Mardenborough will remain in his simulator role.
Pre-season testing for Formula E’s seventh campaign will take place on November 27-December 1 at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia ahead of the first race of the season in Santiago, Chile, on January 16, 2021.
