The Japanese team will debut in Formula E at the Autódromo Rodríguez

The Nissan Formula E Team is ready to start writing its own history in the largest electric single-seater competition in the world, this Saturday, the Japan-based team will make its debut in Formula E by rolling on the asphalt of the Autodromo Rodríguez in what will be the Hankook Mexico City E-Prix 2023.

Although Nissan has been part of a Formula E team since the 2018/19 season, at the end of 2022 it has taken full ownership of the team that previously belonged to DAMS and Mexico City will see its debut alongside that of the Gen3 that arrived for single-seaters this season.
In order to have a good start in its history, the Japanese team has decided to put an experienced driver like Norman Nato and a young man with great driving skills called Sacha Fenestraz, who has already made his debut in Formula E, at the helm of their cars. in the last round of the eighth season.

“The car is very interesting, it is something very different from what I was used to in Japan, but if we talk about Formula E, comparing it with generation 2 is something very big, we can recharge energy from the front end when before it was only the rear end. , so I think the races will become extremely interesting with that Energy Management thing”, commented the Franco-Argentine driver exclusively for RÉCORD.

The Gen3 has brought with it greater difficulties for the drivers who now have more power in the single-seaters and they will have to get used to it quickly, since the championship is about to start and in the tests they carried out in Valencia, all the teams showed complications.

“For everyone it’s something new (Gen3), obviously Formula E drivers have experience with energy regeneration; the championship is going to be very interesting, we all had problems in Valencia, so let’s see how things go at the beginning of the season, because it’s going to be very difficult for everyone”, said Sacha.
