Nissan e.dams scored points in both rounds of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in Rome this weekend. Rounds three and four of season seven took place on a reconfigured Rome E-Prix street circuit, with the racing action-packed and rain-affected.

Team driver Sebastien Buemi took P5 in round three and P10 in round four to score 11 points for Nissan e.dams. His teammate Oliver Rowland had a tough racing weekend but showed strong pace in qualifying in round three, going fastest in group qualifying, scoring a point, and then P3 in the Super Pole qualifying session. The team took a total of 12 points from the double-header event.

Nissan races in this 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 new Nissan vehicle offerings by the early 2030s in key markets. Nissan aims to bring its expertise in transferring knowledge and technology between the racetrack and road for better electric vehicles for customers.

"Two very exciting races for the fans, especially with the rain during qualifying in round four, but ultimately not where we wanted to be in terms of points," said Tommaso Volpe, Nissan's global motorsports director. "Oli had the speed in qualifying for round three, but both drivers were affected by the slippery track for their group two qualifying in round four. Seb had to battle extremely hard in both races to earn points. We will reset for rounds five and six in Valencia."

Nissan recently announced its long-term commitment to bring its electrification strategy to life in Formula E, by extending into the Gen3 era through to season 12 (2025-2026). Nissan joined the series in season five as the only Japanese manufacturer.
