Mortara joins Engel at Venturi for 2017/18
20 October 2017 – Venturi has confirmed that it will field Mercedes DTM drivers Edoardo Mortara and Maro Engel in the 2017/18 Formula E championship.
Mortara, 30, claimed the 2010 Formula 3 title and has since competed in DTM, finishing as runner-up for Audi in 2016, before moving across to Mercedes.
Engel, meanwhile, spent the 2016/17 Formula E campaign with Venturi, alongside his DTM duties with Mercedes.
Engel finished 17th in the championship with a best classification of fifth at the Monaco ePrix.
Both Engel and Mortara conducted pre-season testing for the operation at Valencia earlier this month, and have now formally been confirmed in the race seats.
