Maserati and Rokit Venturi Racing to partner from season 9 | FIA Formula E
Published on 7th April 2022
Maserati and ROKiT Venturi Racing have announced a multi-year partnership ahead of this weekend’s Rome E-Prix double-header, which will see the Italian manufacturer and Monegasque Formula E team link up from Season 9 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
When it joins the fold from 2022/23 and the Gen3 era, Maserati will become the first Italian brand to compete in Formula E as it ends a 60-year hiatus from single-seater motorsport. The marque will unite with ROKiT Venturi Racing for the series’ next generation, with the Gen3 set to be the fastest, lightest and most powerful and most sustainable electric single-seat race car yet.
“Uniting with Maserati marks the start of a new chapter and represents the best possible outcome for the team following our successful partnership with Mercedes-EQ,” says Susie Wolff, CEO & Managing Partner, ROKiT Venturi Racing.
“Being entrusted with the return of one of motorsport’s most recognisable brands to international single-seater competition underlines our success in recent seasons in which we have firmly established ourselves as a commercially viable, race-winning team that can seriously contend for championships.
“With this commitment, the team is now in a fantastic position to contest Formula E’s next generation of competition which will commence in 2023.”
ROKiT Venturi Racing heads the way in the Drivers’ and Teams’ World Championships on the way into Rome, and is looking to consolidate with a strong showing in the Italian capital. Season 7 was the team’s best yet in Formula E, with two race wins and five podiums, while Edoardo Mortara finished runner-up in the Drivers’ standings.
