After six years, Swiss-Italian driver Edoardo Mortara has left Maserati Monaco Sports Group Racing. Here are all the details.
Mortara joined Maserati MSG Racing, known as Venturi at the time, back in 2017. Over the course of his stint with the team, one of the longest and most successful in the championship, Mortara won six races, scored 13 podiums and claimed a total of 422 points.
He came close to winning the Formula E Championship on two occasions, being crowned Vice-Champion in Season Seven, before once again getting close in Season Eight. However, Mortara struggled in Season Nine, being outperformed by new teammate Maximilian Günther.
In a press release, Mortara has reflected on his time with the team.
“The past six years 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,” he began.
“I’m proud of the role I played in this”
The Swiss-Italian driver added, “I’m proud of the role I played in this. I want to take this opportunity to thank the team and for their trust in me and their support. I wish them the best of luck for the future.”
Team Principal James Rossiter said, “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.”
Maserati MSG Racing now have the task of recruiting Mortara’s replacement before the start of Season 10, which gets underway in Mexico City on 13th January.
Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
