Outgoing Renault e.dams driver Nicolas Prost believes that a volatile driver market heading into Season Five could allow him the chance to extend his ABB FIA Formula E Championship career.

Prost will part with the Renault e.dams team after four seasons in which he scored three victories and finished third in the Season Two points standings.

Several teams are expected to change their lineups going into the 2018-19 campaign, including the e.dams squad which will become a Nissan-entered team.

“The driver market is interesting at the moment and I would say quite interesting as more manufacturers come in and so on so we will see what opportunities there are around,” Prost told e-racing365.

“There are at least two teams that are interested in me and there is so much going on but I certainly want to explore good chances for Season Five.

“At the moment there is perhaps as many as seven or eight seats that are up for grabs which means some interesting times ahead I think.”

Prost will undertake his final two races with Renault in New York City next weekend and is confident he can end his association with the team on a high.

“You know, I never give up, even when things are bad and it is hard to get a result for whatever reason,” said Prost. “At Zurich there was bad luck as I had a good quali and was not far from Seb [Buemi].

“There are things which have been difficult and I am the first to say that the new tires are not suited to me but I have to make the best of it.

“At New York I really want to get a result for us all in the team because it has genuinely been a pleasure to go racing with them.”
