The Franco-Argentine racer put in a good performance in the Group Stage of qualifying to progress to the Duels, narrowly missing out on a semi-final berth. Starting eighth, Fenestraz gained a position on the opening lap with an excellent move, and ran as high as sixth, proving his ability in his first race for the team. In a tightly contested race, the 23-year-old continued to set a good pace, before a system issue regarding energy management saw him drop out of the top-10 during the closing stages. “It’s a little bit frustrating because we could see throughout the weekend that the car was strong,” said Tommaso Volpe, managing director of Nissan Formula E Team. “Sacha did an amazing job in qualifying to reach the duels, he showed great potential and almost made it into the semi-finals.” Season 9 of Formula E returns at the end of the month, with the double-header in Diriyah taking place on January 27 and 28.
