Season 9 in Numbers

Season 9 is over.

16 races have been completed across the world, and from our opener in Mexico City to London’s dramatic finale, it was a campaign that had it all.


Action, excitement, and pure pioneering spirit united in the name of innovation, and from the first race to the last, Maserati MSG Racing didn’t miss a beat.


In the face of a difficult start, the team only became stronger, and after scoring only three points in the first six races, recovered to bring home 137 points in the final 10.


Such a turnaround in form is rarely seen in motorsport, but during new races in Hyderabad, Cape Town, and São Paulo, we rallied our efforts.


Formula E’s completion of three races at new venues on a back-to-back basis was a first for the series, but it was at May’s Berlin E-Prix that the pieces of the performance puzzle fell into place.


Since the second weekend of the season in Diriyah, one-lap pace was one of our strongest suits, and with a good qualifying at Tempelhof, we were in a prime position to challenge.


Season 9 was not only the Maserati brand’s first in Formula E, but also its first in World Championship single-seaters since 1957.


So, when Maximilian Günther finished third in Berlin, he made history to bridge astrand in time by scoring the Trident’s first single-seater podium in 66 years.


Max added the Maserati brand’s first pole position and victory since 1957 to his list of records when we visited Jakarta, while it was Edoardo Mortara who scored the Trident’s first points in Formula E.


With his win in Indonesia, Max slotted into the top-10 in Formula E’s winner’s list, while our Swiss-Italian star, Edo, became the series’ 10th most experienced driver in history.


In pure qualifying pace, our duo stand together, and Edo and Max are two of only nine drivers who have scored consecutive pole positions in Formula E.


With a total of 17 duel appearances across the season, Maserati MSG Racing held the third-highest number of qualifying head-to-head appearances on the grid, behind only Jaguar (19) and Envision (18).


Edo’s fifth place finish in London – our final top 10 of the season – marked our 945th point as an operation, and signalled our 84th points finish in 116 entries, yielding a top-10 striking rate of nearly 75% since Season 1.


Across the campaign, Edo and Max navigated a total of 2,228 laps during race weekends alone to drive a distance of 5,943-kilometres during Season 9.


Since lights out in Beijing, Season 1, the team has driven more than 16,000 laps, and has now covered 41,052 kilometres using only fully electric power.


This is the equivalent of driving around the circumference of the Earth once, and around the Moon nearly four times.


As we take time to rest and reset this August, our sights are already set on Season 10, which promises to be a bigger, brighter, and more successful season of competition.
