The driver announcement completes Renault e.dams’ long-term vision. Renault and e.dams finalised terms earlier this year to continue their partnership to create a stable platform going forward and enable Renault to realise its technical and marketing objectives around the growing electric vehicle market.

Sébastien Buemi, ‘Knowing I will be in the Renault e.dams car next year is a definite boost at this point in the year. I’m totally focussed on winning the title this season and knowing that I will be around to potentially defend it is very motivating.’
