Edoardo Mortara has decided not to continue with Maserati MSG Racing in FIA Formula E as he bids goodbye after six seasons together.
Following on from the conclusion of Formula E’s ninth season, Maserati MSG Racing and Edoardo Mortara would like to take the opportunity to confirm that the Swiss-Italian driver will not continue with the team into Season 10 of the FIA Formula E World Championship.
Edo joined the team in 2017 under its previous guise as Venturi, and after finishing on the podium in only his second E-Prix start, kick-started an acclaimed six-season collaboration which would become one of the longest-standing and most successful driver-team partnerships in the series.
Together with the team, Edo won six races, scored 13 podiums, and secured two pole positions to collect 422 points, and in Season 7, memorably became Formula E’s first official vice World Champion before continuing to fight for title glory in Season 8.
Maserati MSG Racing would like to sincerely thank Edo for his incredible contribution to the team over six brilliant years and wish him nothing but the very best for his future endeavours.
Edoardo Mortara: “The past six years of my career have been quite a journey, and it has been an honour to represent the team during this time. Since 2017, we have experienced a lot together, it’s been a rollercoaster at times and by learning from the tough moments we faced, we grew to become a competitive outfit, fighting for race wins and World Championships. I’m proud of the role I played in this. I want to take this opportunity to thank the team for their trust in me and their support, I wish them the best of luck for the future.”
James Rossiter, Team Principal, Maserati MSG Racing: “We would like to thank Edo for his efforts and success over the past six seasons. His experience, knowledge, and expertise have been pivotal in our journey and development as a team. On a personal note, it has been a privilege to work with him and we all wish him every success for the future.”
Giovanni Sgro, Head of Maserati Corse: “Maserati would like to thank Edo for his contribution and for his constant commitment to the team throughout Season 9. His resilience helped the team in achieving positive results and to contributing to the outcome of Maserati’s first season in the all-electric series; he also demonstrated his capability to recover from difficult moments. He is a successful driver and we have been delighted and honoured for him to have been a standard-bearer for the Trident all over the world. We wish him all the best for his racing career.”
