Maserati MSG Racing has confirmed Edoardo Mortara and Max Guenther as its driver line-up for Season 9 of the Formula E World Championship.
Mortara extends his relationship with the outfit as Maserati joins the fold for Gen3, while Guenther makes the move after stints at Dragon, BMW/Andretti and Nissan. The former put himself in the picture for Drivers’ World Championship honours in both Season 7 and Season 8, and spearheaded the team to second in the Teams’ standings and its best points-haul to-date in Formula E, under its prior Venturi guise.
Edoardo Mortara, Driver, Maserati MSG Racing, said: “Since joining in Season 4, the team has become home for me and I’m really happy to continue my journey with such a collection of hard working and talented individuals into Season 9 and beyond. The past five seasons have been some of the best of my career and after taking home six wins, 13 podiums and a Vice World Championship title, I’m looking forward to building upon our current success together in Gen3.
“As a Swiss-Italian, representing the Maserati brand in their return to international motorsport will be a great honour. I’m also looking forward to working with Max who has already shown promise as a Formula E driver. As the reigning Vice-World Champions, it’s a great time to be joining the team and I think Max and I will make a strong team as we take on the Championship together.”
Maximilian Günther, Driver, Maserati MSG Racing, added: “I’m very proud to be joining the Maserati MSG Racing family alongside Edo ahead of Season 9. I have a lot of admiration for the team and their achievements in recent seasons – they have been tough to beat and fully deserve their current status as Vice-World Champions. To be part of the Maserati brand’s return to racing in partnership with MSG Racing is a huge honour for me and I‘m looking forward to building something very strong together.”
