Nissan e.dams driver Oliver Rowland took his second series win in the final round of the ABB Formula E Race at Home Challenge, securing him third in the drivers’ championship & helping Nissan e.dams to second in the teams’ championship.
Rowland’s dominant lights-to-flag win from pole position rounded off the eight-race competition in style, along with Sebastien Buemi’s fifth place from sixth on the starting grid. The success at the final race reflected the team’s strengthening pace & confidence through the second half of the virtual racing series.
With both drivers new to online sim racing competition, Rowland & Buemi used the opening rounds to settle in & adjust to their new sim racing set-ups at home. As the season progressed their experience & pace developed leading to Rowland taking the team’s first win at race five in Berlin.
Rowland went on to take a podium in race six in New York & P4 in race seven, again in New York. This late season surge from Rowland – backed up by two top ten finishes from Buemi – took Rowland to third in the drivers’ championship & the team to second – great results in what has been an extremely competitive & action-packed virtual racing series.
The future is here!
