After completing his second season in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, Edoardo Mortara remains with Venturi for a third season alongside teammate Felipe Massa.
Born in Geneva in 1987, the Swiss driver first stepped up to Formula driving in 2006, starting out in Formula Renault, before graduating to the Formula Three Euroseries. As a former champion in the series, Mortara was one of two drivers to win the prestigious Macau Grand Prix twice, having achieved back-to-back victories in 2009 and 2010.
Moving to the German DTM Championship in 2011, Mortara competed in the series until his debut with Venturi Formula E team ahead of the 2017/18 season. After a promising start to the season when he finished second in Hong Kong in only his second Formula E race, the Swiss driver fell back, finishing the season in 13th place.
Staying on for a second season with the Monegasque team, Mortara was partnered with seasoned race driver Felipe Massa and new Team Principal Susie Wolff in the 2018/19 season. Together, the pair rounded off the season in 14th (Mortara) and 15th (Massa), with the team ranking eighth overall.
Embarking on his third season in the series, Mortara once again partners Massa as they get behind the wheel of the new Mercedes-powered Venturi car. Going up against the most competitive line up in Formula E history, could this be Mortara's chance to challenge for the championship?
