The driver and the team have not yet been determined. With DS, the other Formula E brand from the Stellantis Group, they want to cooperate alongside the track, but compete on it. Jean-Marc Finot, Vice President STELLANTIS Motorsport: “Formula E should represent our technology laboratory to accelerate the development of highly efficient electrified drive trains and intelligent software for our street sports cars.”
Maserati is also an accelerator for the electric world championship. “Having one of the most iconic brands in the world in Formula E is a big, important step,” said Formula E founder Alejandro Agag in a press talk with AUTO BILD. “As an Italian brand, Maserati completes the championship. We have the race in Rome, an Italian driver (ex-F1 driver Antonio Giovinazzi; editor) and soon also Maserati. The Italians love cars and racing. That’s why we’re very happy to finally have an Italian team. “
1957 Juan Manuel Fangio won the F1 world championship title with Maserati. The Maserati last entered the race as a single-seater with Maria Teresa De Filippis, the first woman to qualify for a Formula 1 Grand Prix on board the 250F.
