Norman Nato is back with a full-time drive for Season 9, returning to the championship with Nissan and looking to recapture the race winning form that took him to a debut victory in the final race of Season 7.

Since entering professional motorsport in 2006, Nato has worked his way up the ladder, finishing runner-up in F4 Eurocup 1.6 back in 2010 and in Formula Renault 2.0 Alps in 2012. 

From there, Nato stepped into Formula Renault 3.5 and took a dominant victory around the streets of Monte Carlo. His performances opened the door to GP2 Series - now Formula 2 - where he took three wins and eight podiums in three seasons and finished fifth overall in 2016.

Most recently, Nato came third in both the 2018 European Le Mans Series and the 2019/20 FIA World Endurance Championship, including a second-placed finish in the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Nato has already dipped into the world of all-electric street racing, having taken part in the annual Marrakesh Rookie Test and he has spent hours carrying out developmental work for the team in its simulator over the last two years.

The Frenchman made his debut in Formula E alongside Edoardo Mortara at ROKiT Venturi Racing. It was a season of ups and downs with penalties denying Nato podiums in Rome and Valencia, but he ended his campaign on a high with win in the Berlin season finale - becoming only the third driver to visit the top step in their rookie season.

Without a drive in Formula E for Season 8, Nato combined his efforts in the LMP2 category of the World Endurance Championship with a reserve driver role at Jaguar TCS Racing - where he stepped up to the plate to replace the injured Sam Bird in the season finale double-header in Seoul.

Nato is back in behind the wheel full-time for Season 9, partnering rookie compatriot Sacha Fenestraz at the works Nissan outfit.
