Drivers Norman Nato and Sacha Fenestraz will compete for the Nissan Formula E Team for the first time at the Aut├│dromo Hermanos Rodriguez as Season 9 begins. Following the introduction of the game-changing Gen3 regulations, the 2023 Mexico City E-Prix is thought to be one of the most unpredictable in Formula E history.

“We’ve not had too much time between testing in Valencia and the first race, so we’ve been busy analyzing data from the programs we ran and making adjustments to our car,” said Tommaso Volpe, general manager, Nissan Formula E and managing director, Nissan Formula E Team. “One of the most important factors this weekend will be to finally see how each team will adapt to the new technologies in the Gen3 car, as we’re all starting from scratch in that sense. We’re really focused and looking to implement everything we learned in Valencia for a smooth weekend with the new car and systems. It’s exciting as it will be the first time we see everybody’s true pace and how each team manages every key performance factor in the car. We’ll be aiming to start the season strongly and set ourselves on a path to grow throughout the campaign.”

The new season marks the first time Nissan Formula E Team competes as one team, with a bold new livery featuring a cherry blossom design. The flower is a symbol of new beginnings, reflecting both the team and the championship entering new eras in 2023.

With extra power, higher speeds and a striking car design, the 2022/23 campaign represents a huge milestone for the championship. The series is also set to visit four new locations across the 16-round calendar, with trips to Hyderabad, Cape Town, Sao Paulo and Portland booked in.
