F-E: Venturi announces Edoardo Mortara as Felipe Massa’s partner

Brazilian Felipe Massa already knows who will be his team-mate at Venturi for the 2018-19 season of Formula E: it will be the Swiss Edoardo Mortara, who played the previous season for the Monegasque team.
VENTURI Formula E Team has confirmed the name of the Brazilian Felipe Massa’s partner in the Formula E 2018/19 season. It will be Swiss Edoardo Mortara, who has already raced for the Monaco team in the previous championship.
Including, the future companion of Felipe Massa almost gained one of the stages of Hong Kong last season. Mortara finished the championship with 29 points, two fewer than his Venturi teammate during the season, German Maro Engel. But it is worth remembering that the Swiss rider missed out on three world championship races.
“I am very happy to represent the VENTURI Formula E Team again at ABB FIA Formula E. The exponential growth and appeal of this revolutionary competition demonstrates that Formula E is really the future of motorsport,” said Edoardo Mortara.
“I received phenomenal support from the team. You can not underestimate the importance of this for a driver, in addition to great support and goodwill from our fans, “added the Swiss.
Susie Wolff, director of the Venturi team, added: “The decision to extend our journey with Edoardo came after careful consideration. We are convinced that he and Felipe Massa will form a solid pair in the new Gen2 cars. ”
With this announcement, the Venturi team closes its team of drivers for the next season of Formula E, which will begin on December 15 of this year in Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.
In addition to Felipe Massa, two other Brazilian drivers will be present on the grid: Lucas di Grassi for Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler, and Nelsinho Piquet for Panasonic Jaguar Racing.
