Edorado Mortara will line up alongside Felipe Massa at Venturi for the 2018/2019 season of the Formula E Championship.
The Swiss- Italian driver joined the Monegasque team last season alongside Maro Engel- who is set to join HWA- the duo accumulated 72 points for Venturi over the course of season four, leaving them in seventh position in the teams’ standings.
“I’m very happy to represent Venturi again in the ABB FIA 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.
“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,” said Mortara.
Mortara put himself in the spotlight with his performances in Hong Kong, on the opening weekend of season four. Making his debut in Formula E, the rookie started in style with a second place finish in the second race, having led for much of proceedings. His 8th place finish in Mexico – where he produced a stunning comeback drive after starting back in 18th – was another highlight of his season.
