New cockpit: Maximilian GŁnther to start in Formula E with Maserati MSG Racing

03.11.2022: 25-year-old Maximilian GŁnther will continue his pursuit of success in the FIA Formula E World Championship with Maserati MSG Racing from the coming season. The premium car maker from Italy is returning to motorsport after more than a decade away,


25-year-old Maximilian Günther will continue his pursuit of success in the FIA Formula E World Championship with Maserati MSG Racing from the coming season.



The premium car maker from Italy is returning to motorsport after more than a decade away, and has turned to the wealth of experience possessed by the German, who has been racing in Formula E for four years. Günther is the youngest Formula E race winner ever.




Born in Oberstdorf, Günther’s Formula E breakthrough came in January 2020: aged just 22 at the time, he triumphed in Chile to take his place in the history books as the youngest Formula E race winner ever. This was followed by a further two victories in Berlin in 2020 and New York in 2021.



The Monaco resident is now set for his fifth season in Formula E. And Günther is already making history with his new team, Maserati MSG Racing. The world famous premium manufacturer is the first Italian automotive brand to enter the world championship for fully-electric race cars.



With three wins, four podiums and over 50 races under his belt, the new racing team from Monaco is putting its faith in the skills of the man from the Allgäu. Günther, meanwhile, can count on a strong team: in its previous guise, ROKiT Venturi Racing, the team finished runner-up in last year’s Team world championship.



Günther will now benefit from the wealth of experience that his new team, under the guidance of team principal James Rossiter, has acquired in more than 100 races. Maserati MSG Racing also crossed the finish line first on eight occasions and made 21 appearances on the podium. Together with team-mate Edoardo Mortara from Switzerland, Maserati MSG Racing can rely on two fast drivers hungry for success.



The new Gen3 car will be used for the first time this coming season. With 350 kilowatts of output (roughly 480 hp), the fully-electric car is faster and more powerful than ever before. Maserati MSG Racing will use the proven and successful DS drivetrain in its debut season. Günther has already completed an initial roll-out with the new car on the Spanish island of Mallorca.



The Maserati logo, the world famous trident, has enjoyed great success in motorsport in the past. One such motor racing triumph came in 1957, when the Italians won the Formula 1 World Championship with Argentinean Juan Manuel Fangio at the wheel.



Maximilian Günther:
“I’m very proud to be a Maserati MSG Racing driver and feel privileged to represent the colours of such a famous brand. We are facing a great challenge in Formula E with the new and significantly more powerful cars. I’m ready for it and convinced that we as a team have all elements to build something great and unique together. It will be an exciting season coming up.”



The first indicator for the new season for Günther and Maserati MSG Racing comes from 13th to 16th December. The Spanish city of Valencia will host a three-day test, at which the team will primarily focus on fine-tuning and perfect coordination for next year’s 17 races. The event in Mexico City (14.01.2023) forms the opening round of the new season.




As well as the double-header in Berlin, the spectacular race through Günther’s home streets in Monaco will also be a special challenge for the German. Maserati MSG Racing can look forward to a carnival atmosphere at the Rome E-Prix, which features two home races in the Italian capital.
