Norman Nato and Sacha Fenestraz team up with Nissan for the first campaign of Gen3 era of Formula E season 9.
Nato, a Formula E race winner, makes his full-time return to the series with the Japanese manufacturer having competed in the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2022. The 30-year-old Frenchman had a stellar junior career, winning races in Formula Renault 3.5 Series, GP2 Series and FIA Formula 2, while also taking an overall second place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2020.
For Fenestraz, next season will mark his first full-time campaign in Formula E, following his debut at the final round of Season 8. The French-Argentine racer won the Japanese Formula 3 title in 2019 and continues to compete in the country in both Super Formula and the GT500 class of the Super GT championship. So far in 2022, the 23-year-old has taken victory in both championships and currently tops the Super GT standings.
Season 9 (2022/23) will be Nissan’s fifth in Formula E and marks the start of the Gen3 era. With 350 kilowatts (40% more power than in Gen2) and a top speed over 320 km/h, the new cars will be lighter and smaller, enabling faster, more agile wheel-to-wheel all-electric racing.
