Nico showed some great performance on this track, which is well-suited to Formula E cars, having established himself as a very versatile and experienced driver despite his 19 years of age.

Supervised by engineers and mechanics from DS Performance who are specifically dedicated to his programme, the young Chilean benefits from an ideal environment to prepare for the top categories of motorsport.

Being mentored by the best in the world and preparing for the next steps in my career with them is a unique opportunity. We are all working with exactly the same motivation and this is very rewarding for me. Session after session, we are getting to know each other better, and we all share the ambition to achieve more!”
