In Numbers: Maserati MSG Racing’s Quarter-Term Report

The first season of Formula E’s highly anticipated Gen3 era is well underway, and with five races completed already, only 11 remain in the current campaign.

From the fiesta of Mexico City and the deserts of Diriyah, to the energy of Hyderabad and the breathtaking views of Cape Town, this season has seen races in four locations so far.

The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez and Riyadh Street Circuit are familiar venues, yet outings in India and South Africa marked landmark weekends for international motorsport.

The journey from Hyderabad and Cape Town marked the first time that Formula E has raced in two new locations back-to-back since the end of Season 3.

But with another new location, São Paulo, set to host Formula E for the first time next week, it will mark the first time the series has raced consecutively in three new cities outside of its inaugural season.

While the world’s premier fully-electric championship continues to make history, so too does Maserati MSG Racing, which experienced a historic weekend in Saudi Arabia.

When Edoardo Mortara took the chequered flag in ninth, the Swiss-Italian secured the Maserati brand’s first points finish in World Championship single-seater motorsport since Juan Manuel Fangio finished second at the 1957 Italian Grand Prix.

This ended a wait of 65 years and four months, or a total of 23,883 days, between points finishes.

One lap pace has been a particular highlight this season, with Edo and team-mate Maximilian Günther advancing to the qualifying duels on four occasions.

The duo have won three head-to-heads so far, and with a clinical run in Cape Town, Max advanced to the Final for the first time in his career to deliver our first front row start of the season.

Although race results haven’t aligned through a mixture of poor luck and misfortune, Edo and Max have been on the move, and have completed 40 on-track overtakes so far.

17 of these came at the Hyderabad E-Prix alone, which was the site of Edo’s 386th point in Formula E to date.

With a total of 663 laps turned this season, the team has surpassed 15,000 all-time laps across race weekends since joining Formula E.

This distance total of 1,774 kilometres means that the team has driven 36,883 kilometres since lights out in Beijing Season 1.

This is the equivalent of driving around the circumference of the moon three times, but less than 4,000 kilometres shy of driving around the circumference of Earth, all using fully-electric power.
