Maserati MSG Racing head into the new FIA ABB Formula E world championship, the first with the Gen3 car.
Looking ahead to the new season and the debut of the team, James Rossiter, Tram Principal of Maserati MSG Racing commented saying:
Getting back on track and starting a new era for Formula E is hugely exciting and over the past weeks and months, everyone at Maserati MSG Racing has been working furiously behind-the-scenes to make sure that we’re in a good position for this weekend. A promising pre-season test in Valencia brought us confidence, but unfortunately, that performance will count for nothing in Mexico City, race performance is where it counts.
“We’re facing a big challenge but we have an incredible team of experienced, talented people, hungry for success. No matter what happens, we’re in for an exciting and unpredictable race weekend, and if everything aligns, we firmly believe that we have the chance to deliver a strong result.
Edoardo Mortara, Driver, Maserati MSG Racing commented on the start of the new season saying:
“I’m really looking forward to Mexico City and starting my sixth season in Formula E. Last year, we took a big step forward in performance as a team, and with the Gen3 car, we’re at a new stage of discovery in electric vehicle technology and we’re nearly starting from scratch. It’s very different to drive, and the increased power under braking and acceleration makes for an enjoyable challenge behind the wheel.
“We were fortunate to have a solid pre-season test in Valencia, but the real work will begin in Mexico City. In Formula E, the margins are super tight, and it will be very hard to identify who will be the team to beat at this stage. Because of this, it’s important for us to focus on ourselves and make sure that our technical package is the best it possibly can be. If we stay grounded, work hard and focus on our own performance, I’m confident that we can go on to achieve strong results.”
Maximilian Günther, Driver, Maserati MSG Racing who joined the team over the off-season is excited about the next chapter in his Formula E career saying:
“I’m feeling great about Mexico City, and I’m very excited to get the season started. The Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez is a very special place for every driver. Not only do I love racing there, but the fans are probably the most passionate of the whole season and every year, the stadium section, Foro Sol, has an amazing energy and buzz. The track itself is fun to drive and has a number of different challenges, especially with the altitude which makes it quite unique compared to other races on the calendar.
“We enjoyed a promising pre-season test in Valencia, and since then, we have been working very hard behind the scenes to continue to optimise our performance. Because the Gen3 car is new, I anticipate that everyone in the paddock will have a steep learning curve, but that’s what makes a new era exciting. I’m really looking forward to starting my first race for Maserati MSG Racing, I feel part of the family already and I can’t wait to get going.”
Giovanni Sgro, Head of Maserati Corse
“Pre-season testing in Valencia was a great indication of the talent and dedication of the entire Maserati MSG Racing team. As we approach the first round of the season in Mexico, we can’t wait to see Max and Edo compete in what’s set to be another memorable moment for us all. The official return of the Maserati brand to racing will be packed with emotion, as we set our sights on the podium once again to race beyond.”
