On July 16 in Rome, Nato he demonstrated all his talent starting from third position. Thanks to a brilliant overtaking in the first laps, the French driver maintained a competitive pace up to the finish line. On the other hand, Nato’s teammate, Sacha Fenestraz had less luck, being forced to make a pit stop due to a technical problem, which relegated him to sixteenth position.
In the Saturday race, which took place on July 15th, Nato recovered 4 positions compared to his qualifying position and finished the race in seventh place. On the other hand, Fenestraz had a good start starting from third position, but due to the red flag and the operational stoppage, he finished the race in tenth place.
Norman Nato commented: “I’m very happy with Sunday’s performance. We were satisfied with qualifying but we knew it would be more difficult in the race. I had a good feeling with the car all the time, it was low on energy but I handled it well. The strategy was perfect, we fought hard and that shows the progress we made as a team during the season. Scoring points both days was great. We will enjoy this race and look to keep pushing for London at the end of the month.”
The final event of Season 9 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will take place on 29 and 30 July in London, with Rounds 15 and 16.
