Felipe Massa has decided to leave the Venturi Formula E team after spending two seasons with the team.
There were rumours that the former Formula 1 driver would be leaving the series after he admitted that Formula E was not fun in season six.
Massa’s best result with the Monegasque team was third at the 2019 Monaco E-Prix.
“Leaving a team is never an easy decision to make,” said Massa. “We’ve made some good memories together and it’s given me the opportunity to learn something completely different from what I’m used to, so, first of all, I want to thank [Venturi President] Gildo [Pastor] and [Team Principal] Susie [Wolff] for their faith in me.
“It’s been an honour to be part of the only motorsport team from the Principality, and representing them on the podium at the Monaco E-Prix was a definite highlight for me.
“The past two seasons have been a big learning curve for us all and unfortunately, for various reasons, we haven’t quite achieved what we hoped.
Team Principal Susie Wolff has thanked Massa for all his hard work in helping the Venturi team move forward.
Despite that, it’s been a lot of fun and I wish the team nothing but the very best of luck for the future. I look forward to announcing my future plans in due course.”
“Felipe has brought a lot to the team. Having someone of his profile, calibre and experience has been a big help in driving the team forward. I have a huge amount of respect for Felipe. It’s been a joy working with him again and I wish him the very best for the future.”
