Nissan e.dams builds performance ahead of iconic Mexico City Formula E race

10.02.2022: The team aims to repeat podium pace at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez Nissan e.dams returns to Mexico City this weekend for Round 3 of the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, where the team scored podium finishes at its last two visits.



The team aims to repeat podium pace at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez



Nissan e.dams returns to Mexico City this weekend for Round 3 of the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, where the team scored podium finishes at its last two visits.  


The all-electric world championship is set for its sixth appearance in Mexico City. For Season 8, the teams will make a welcome return to the impressive Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, to be greeted by thousands of passionate motorsports fans.



Last time out at this venue in Season 6, Nissan e.dams driver Sébastien Buemi battled hard to take third place in a thrilling race.



Unique in its design, the circuit loops through the famous Foro Sol or ‘stadium’ section that, on race days, is a vibrant sea of fans, colour and excitement. In Season 7, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the race took place at the Autódromo Miguel E. Abed outside the city of Puebla.  



With its abundance of corners, the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez circuit will require drivers to accelerate at full power many times, making energy management a key focus. In the fast sections, Buemi and his new teammate Maximilian Günther will need to make good use of their Nissan Formula E Gen2 race car’s extra power - increased by 20 kW to 220 kW in Race Mode and by 15 kW to 250 kW in Attack Mode for this season.  



"It’s great to be back in Mexico City at the stunning Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, where we enjoyed success in Season 6,” said Tommaso Volpe, general manager Nissan Formula E. “The track offers both technical challenges and a brilliant atmosphere, featuring a combination of twisty sections and a high-speed corner where car balance is key. As a team, we will need to find the best compromise between speed and energy consumption.  



“This is a very demanding track that the drivers love, and the fans, especially those located in the stadium section, are usually rewarded with some exciting overtaking manoeuvres. Everyone should enjoy the race and the team will fight hard to replicate our previous results achieved here. We want to put on a good show for our many Nissan fans in Mexico. We’ve been selling our all-electric Nissan LEAF here since 2014, and this race is always the perfect way to demonstrate just how exciting EVs are.”



Nissan e.dams co-team principals Grégory and Olivier Driot also commented: “Nissan e.dams is back in Mexico City and, for any racing team, Mexico has always been linked with thermal issues. Due to the track’s high altitude, the air density is lower than on all other circuits, reducing the air-cooling efficiency of the main race car components such as the motor and brakes.



However, in these conditions is where a Formula E car highlights its genuine advantage over ICE-powered cars. Thanks to its highly efficient electric motor, the power unit heat is reduced to its minimum and cooling becomes much less of an issue. It’s the same for the brakes, as a Formula E car decelerates mainly with the electric motor regenerating energy into the battery instead of heating up the brake discs. Therefore, the cooling challenge is reduced to battery temperature monitoring.”



This season the team will continue to link its presence in Formula E to Nissan's road EVs. Buemi will race once more in his #23 Nissan Ariya, named after the Japanese manufacturer’s all-new electric crossover SUV. Günther is racing in the #22 Nissan LEAF, named after the brand’s well-known EV first launched in 2010.



Nissan is a pioneer in electromobility in Mexico. The Nissan LEAF was introduced in the market in 2014, becoming the country’s first full electric vehicle, while the second-generation LEAF was launched in 2018 with great success. Recently, as part of the celebrations of the brand’s 60th anniversary in the country, Nissan announced the arrival of the revolutionary e-POWER technology, which offers a perfect combination of full electric driving, powerful acceleration, instant response, and exciting drive.



Nissan races in this all-electric world championship to bring the excitement and fun of zero-emission electric vehicles to a global audience. As part of its goal to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations and the life cycle of its products by 2050, Nissan intends to electrify all its new vehicles by the early 2030s in key markets. The Japanese automaker aims to bring its expertise in transferring knowledge and technology between the racetrack and road for better electric vehicles for customers.
