After a successful debut season in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, which saw him clinch the Rookie of the Year award, Rowland embarks on his second season with Nissan e.dams, once again partnering with veteran driver Sebastien Buemi.
Starting his career in karting at the age of seven, Rowland spent a decade racing in various series around the United Kingdom before progressing to Formula Renault, taking a place on the grid of the 2010 Formula Renault UK Winter Series with CRS Racing. At the same time, the British driver received funding from the Racing Steps Foundation, which helped him graduate into single-seater racing.
Moving to Formula Renault 3.5 in 2013, Rowland finished his campaign in fourth with seven podium finishes, before taking the championship title in 2015 with Fortec Motorsports. That same year, he made his debut in Formula E with Mahindra Racing, filling in for driver Nick Heidfield in the Punta del Este E-Prix where he finished 13th.
After making his debut in GP2 in Silverstone the same year, Rowland competed in the series for two seasons, finishing third overall in 2017. Entering into Formula One in 2017, Rowland was signed to the role of development driver to the Renault F1 team.
In 2018 the Sheffield-born driver was confirmed as Williams Martini Racing's official Junior Driver ahead of securing a full-time seat with Nissan e.dams.
Joining Formula E full-time after one outing for Mahindra in the 2015/16 season, Rowland partnered with Sebastien Buemi for the team's debut season. Finishing second in the teams' championship after six podium finishes, six pole positions and 16 Super Pole qualifying appearances, the team ended the season with its first ever victory during the final race weekend in New York, which went to Rowland's teammate Buemi.
Now embarking on his second campaign with the team, Rowland looks to improve on his strong start in the hope of reaching the top step of the podium and on to the drivers' championship title.
