Review: Oliver Rowland fights back in Monaco on the grippy Hankook iON Race

Britain’s Oliver Rowland used the full power of his Nissan E-4ORCE 04 and the extreme amount of grip provided by the Hankook iON Race to mount an impressive fightback at the Monaco E-Prix. The 31-year-old driver from the Nissan Formula E team gained a full nine positions, equalling the record for the biggest fightback, which he now shares with Norman Nato (Andretti Formula E). Even as the race drew to an end, the impressive consistency of the Hankook iON Race still allowed Rowland to keep pushing and overtake Porsche driver Antonio Felix da Costa to take sixth place. “Looking at the race, I am very happy with our performance. That was one of my best races this season,” said Rowland.
