Maserati is officially returning to racing single-seaters in 2023 after 60 years. And as the Trident gears up for its inaugural season in Formula E as a manufacturer, the team has announced two proven race winners and experienced drivers in its lineup.
Edoardo Mortara and Maximilian Günther will be driving for Maserati MSG Racing for season 9 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. By uniting passion, experience, youth, and thirst for ground-breaking results, Edo and Max embody a potent strike force for the series’ Gen3 era, which represents a new benchmark for electric vehicle performance.
Mortara is extending his partnership with Maserati MSG Racing, who took over from Venturi Formula E team which the Swiss-Italian driver has raced for since 2017. In Season 7, Edo became Formula E’s first vice World Champion and battled to third in Season 8’s title fight in a competitive campaign decorated with four race victories. With 6 wins and 13 podiums, Edo will continue to add to his current success with Maserati MSG Racing in Season 9 – his sixth with the Monaco-based team.
Outside Formula E, Mortara is known as “Mr. Macau” as he has scored ten wins from 2008 to 2017 in F3 and GT racing in the prestigious Macau Grand Prix.
On the other hand, Maserati MSG Racing's second car will be driven by Formula E's youngest race winner. Max Günther joined the all-electric grid in Season 5 following a series of standout performances in Formula 2 and tasted victory in only his 13th E-Prix start.
With three wins already achieved and at only 25 years old, Max represents the future of Formula E and as one of motorsport’s most promising talents, will join team-mate Edo to form one of Season 9’s most competitive lineups.
Maserati will be the first Italian automotive manufacturer to appear in the Formula E championship where the Gen3 cars are promised to be the fastest, lightest, and most powerful Formula E single-seater ever, featuring a range of innovations in terms of design, production, and technology.
