Modena, 9 April 2024 – Maserati is preparing for its home race, the only Italian rounds in the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, scheduled for Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 April at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.

In a departure from the usual Formula E host city of Rome, Rounds 6 and 7 of the series for full-electric single-seaters will be hosted for the first time in the iconic Italian “Motor Valley”, in Misano Adriatico, close to the Trident's ‘home’ in Modena.

The Modena-based brand has a rich sporting DNA, founded on the race track. Maserati’s participation in Formula E, not only invokes its victorious racing pedigree, but also underlines the advent of a major historical moment, the arrival of Folgore, Maserati's 100% electric range.

In Italy’s Motor Valley, Maserati is a pioneer in the field of electrification and is the first Italian luxury car brand to produce full-electric models, as well as the first to compete in Formula E.

In a context so strongly oriented towards innovation and performance, the Maserati MSG Racing drivers are ready to give their best between the kerbs of one of the most iconic circuits, beloved of two- and four-wheel enthusiasts around the world.

After a thrilling victory in Tokyo, the first of this season for Maserati MSG Racing with Max Günther as the undisputed star at the debut of Formula E on Japanese soil, the team is eager to continue this excellent performance in front of the Italian racing fans, who are anxiously waiting to see Max and Jehan’s Maserati Tipo Folgore in action in the quest for further victories.

During the 2023 season, Max Günther achieved an outstanding third place at the Italian round in Rome. 
With the memory of that podium placing and the taste of the recent win in Japan, it’s all to play for in Italy this weekend. Just as keen to make his mark on the team and put in a good performance on the track is teammate Jehan Daruvala, the only rookie in this Formula E season.

Together with Tokyo and Shanghai, the Misano Adriatico rounds are a new fixture on the calendar for Season 10 of the FIA Formula E World Championship. Rounds 6 and 7 also mark the run-up to the halfway point in the season – due to end in London on 21 July – where Maserati MSG Racing is currently seventh in the teams’ standings.
