Maserati to partner Venturi for Gen 3

Maserati will partner with Venturi Racing as the Italian manufacturer makes its return to single-seater racing.

Maserati previously announced it would join the Formula E grid from 2022-23 onwards, as Formula E enters its Gen 3 era.

It will provide powertrains to championship leads Venturi.

“Returning to motorsport with Formula E was a natural choice for Maserati,” CEO Davide Grasso said.

“We are driven by our passion and innovation and we’re happy to share this adventure with a partner that abides by the same values as we do and is looking ahead to the future, just like us.

“We share with the ROKiT Venturi Racing team the same determination and desire to compete and win on circuits all over the world.”

For the past three seasons, Venturi has run Mercedes EQ powertrains. The team has so far taken three wins with Mercedes power, including a victory for Edoardo Mortara in Saudi Arabia, and leads the teams’ championship by two points to the Mercedes manufacturer team. However, with the German manufacturer leaving the series at the end of the year, Venturi needed to find a new supplier for the Gen 3 era.

“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,” said Venturi CEO Susie Wolff.

“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.”

Maserati is one of seven manufacturers confirmed for Formula E’s Gen 3 era, and joins fellow Stellantis brand DS.
