Edoardo Mortara will continue to represent the Venturi team during Season 5 of the Formula E championship. The Swiss-Italian driver will be teammates with Felipe Massa.
The move to retain the services of Mortara is part of a clear policy of continuity. It is also a part of the development strategy which Venturi’s president Gildo Pastor launched in late 2017.
Mortara remains at Venturi for Season 5 in Formula E
Edoardo Mortara has six wins at the very quick and demanding street circuit in Macao. Four of them were in the GT Cup (including the title of winner of the FIA GT World Cup in 2017). He has as well the title of European Champion of the 2010 Formula 3 Euroseries. In 2016, Edoardo MORTARA was also vice-champion of the German DTM championship, where he currently lies in fourth place. Meanwhile, the Venturi team is preparing for the next Formula E season.
“I’m very happy to represent Venturi Formula E Team again in the Formula E Championship. The exponential growth and appeal of this revolutionary competition demonstrates that Formula E really is the future of motorsport. As part of the team last season, I felt a strong will to succeed and I enjoyed the innate potential within Venturi. Moreover, on a personal level, I received phenomenal support from the team. You can’t underestimate the importance of this for a driver, alongside huge support and goodwill from our fans which I’m very grateful for. I’m also very proud to compete alongside Felipe Massa, one of the most experienced and fastest drivers in the world”, Mortara commented.
