Nissan Formula E Team in the points despite bad luck in Hyderabad

Nissan Formula E Team secured points in the first-ever Hyderabad E-Prix, with Norman Nato taking seventh in a chaotic race.

Meanwhile, Sacha Fenestraz had podium hopes, running in fourth before being caught up in an incident and working his way back up to 12 th in Round 4 of Season 9.

Having started 14th, Nato continued to prove the strong race pace of the car. Despite being hit and forced to pit midway through the event with a puncture, the Frenchman came back through the field to secure seventh and his first points for the team, plus a bonus point for the fastest lap of the race.

Fenestraz impressed again in qualifying, progressing to the Duels for the second time this season. He narrowly missed out on making it through to the semi-finals but started the race fourth due to track limits penalties for other drivers.

A strong launch saw the Franco-Argentine challenging the top-three in the early stages, before being unluckily caught up in an incident and losing several positions, recoveringto12th.

“We never look for excuses when we don’t perform but this time the team did a perfect job throughout the weekend, apart from one little issue in qualifying with Norman,” said Tommaso Volpe, team principal and managing director, Nissan Formula E Team. “Both drivers put up a strong fight in the race, with Sacha challenging for the podium and Norman recovering several positions. Unfortunately, Sacha was prevented from taking agreat result through no fault of his own. He definitely had the potential to score a lot of
points today. Norman put in a brilliant drive, making up several positions despite a pitstop to finish P7. We know we have a quick car, so we’ll look to be back in the fight at the front in Cape Town.”
