Nissan Formula E Team prepped for 2024 season opener

MANILA: The Nissan Formula E Team is prepped and ready for the first race of the 2024 season, the Japanese carmaker said.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Where will Formula E hold its first race for the 2024 season?

    The first race for the 2024 Formula E season will be held at the Mexico City E-Prix.
  • Who are the two drivers for the Nissan Formula E Team?

    The two drivers for the Nissan Formula E Team are Sacha Fenestraz and Oliver Rowland.
  • According to the Japanese carmaker, the said race will take place this weekend at the Mexico City E-Prix. There, drivers Sacha Fenestraz and Oliver Rowland look to showcase what they have and ultimately take the crown for the crew.

    “Nissan has a rich history in Mexico, having operated there for more than 60 years. Since establishing its first manufacturing plant outside of Japan in the country in 1966, Nissan has gone on to produce 14 million vehicles and 15 million engines, for both local and foreign markets. The Mexico City E-Prix is another opportunity to deepen Nissan's important connection with the nation,” the company wrote in a press release.

    The Mexico City E-Prix circuit has become a staple of the Formula E calendar, being held every year since its inception except for 2021.

    At 2,250 meters above sea level — Nissan pointed out — the track presents a unique challenge to both car and driver. The lower air density will lead to a 25 percent reduction in both drag and downforce compared to sea level, which is why it is one of the fastest tracks in the series.

    Nissan said that the track will push the drivers to cope with low levels of grip and oxygen while navigating the circuit, which includes the technical section at the legendary Foro Sol Stadium, leading into the sweeping, high-speed Peraltada curve.

    “I’m feeling good heading into Season 10, we’ve been hard at work in the off-season bringing new features and upgrades to the car to address our main weaknesses from last year. Looking forward to Mexico, it’s a track that has suited our car historically so we’re targeting a strong performance. If we can ensure we perfect our race management and extract the most pace possible from the Nissan e-4ORCE 04, while building on our experience and positives from our last race here, I believe we can begin the season with a good result,” Nissan Formula E Team Managing Director and Team Principal Tommaso Volpe stated.
