With 17 races ahead, it will be the longest season to date.

Maserati’s return to the motorsport arena in 2023 has allowed the brand to renew its racing spirit, which has formed part of the marque’s DNA for many years.

 

If you recall, the Italian manufacturer announced in 2022 that it will be competing in the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, the first world all-electric road-racing motorsport series that aligns with Maserati’s commitment to electrification.

 

For season 10 of the ABB Formula E World Championship, which officially kicks off with the Mexico City E-Prix on Saturday, January 13, Maserati has announced its participation in the series, with race winner Maximilian Günther joined by this year’s only rookie, Jehan Daruvala.

 

Last season, Maserati MSG Racing fought it out in the top 10, thus finishing the championship in 6th place as a result of three podium placings and a race victory for Max Günther.

 

Max’s moments of glory include a gold with a P1 in Jakarta and a P3 on the podium in Rome.

 

According to Maserati, the 2024 season, with 17 races, is dedicated to the search for new competitive goals and new objectives in terms of technological innovation. That said, it will be the longest season to date.

 

“I’m very much looking forward to kicking off the season in Mexico City. We’ve had a great off-season, made some good steps forward, and the spirit within the team is strong. The track in Mexico City is a challenge that I enjoy a lot; the layout is fast, and we have this amazing section through the Foro Sol stadium where you really feel the passion and the energy of the fans," says Maximilian Günther, Driver, Maserati MSG Racing.
