In Their Words

James Rossiter, Team Principal, Maserati MSG Racing
“It was good to get Season 9 underway in Mexico City, and although the weekend didn’t go as we hoped, it highlighted some key areas where we can improve our performance. Since the race, we’ve been working hard to optimise our pace and day by day, our understanding of Formula E’s new Gen3 package is continuing to improve. This weekend’s race in Diriyah is the first double-header of the season, and this means that we have not one, but two chances to score points. The track itself is one of the most technical on the calendar but I know that as a team, we have the knowledge and experience to ride the challenges it presents. Edo won last season’s race here, and with the right approach, we’re confident that we can achieve another strong result this year.”

Edoardo Mortara, Driver, Maserati MSG Racing
“Diriyah is one of the most challenging races of the season, and with a mixture of different corner types, it tests almost every aspect of a driver’s skill. The circuit is fast and extremely technical, and this means that it’s quite important to build up to doing a strong lap. Having confidence in the team, and the car, is very important if you want to achieve a good result, and I have full faith in the team. I was fortunate to win the last race here, but with a new car and new tyres to understand we’re going into this weekend almost starting from scratch. As always, I will be giving it my all and I hope we will come away from the weekend happy with our performance.”

Maximilian Günther, Driver, Maserati MSG Racing
“I can’t wait to get back behind the wheel this weekend. From the cockpit the Gen3 car is a great challenge, enjoyable to drive and I’m looking forward to seeing how it performs in Diriyah which is one of the most technical tracks on the calendar. The extra power will make a big difference on the straights and will especially make the second sector exciting to drive. Since Mexico we’ve been working hard to improve our performance further and we are aiming to take that next step to challenge for top positions.”

Giovanni Sgro, Head of Maserati Corse
“Maserati is back racing and it’s great to be back on track. The Mexico E-Prix was our inaugural race and what a fantastic experience. We have learnt a lot and now we are ready and stronger for the next E-prix at Diriyah. We are ready to race beyond.”
