Nissan e.dams worked hard in a tough and demanding 2022 Shell Recharge Berlin E-Prix double-header. The team tested various strategies throughout the weekend but ultimately struggled to find pace on the high-speed Tempelhof Airport Street Circuit. Sébastien Buemi had a promising start in Saturday’s opening round. The Swiss qualified within the top 10, but he lost several positions at the beginning of the race due to a minor issue and crossed the finish line in P14. On Sunday, it was a challenging Round 8 as the drivers took to the abrasive track in the opposite direction. Günther and Buemi didn’t make it through to the duels phase in qualifying and started the race in P12 and P18, respectively. Buemi fought hard in his #23 Nissan Ariya and worked his way up the grid to finish P14 again.

The 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship now reaches the halfway point of the season, and the team looks ahead to the next round of the all-electric series as the drivers take to the streets of Jakarta for the very first time on 04 June 2022.

"I’m disappointed not to score any points here in Berlin, but I didn’t have enough pace to compete with the rest of the field. A frustrating weekend for the team. In the end, I did the best I could, so I’m not completely unhappy; I now need to work with the team to see how we can improve for the next race." Sébastien Buemi
