Felipe Massa made deal with formula E team Venturi

Former Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa will join the Venturi Formula E team from the 2018/19 season.

Massa, who won 11 grands prix during his 16-year career in F1, has previously tested for the Jaguar FE squad and recently visited the electric series at its inaugural event in Rome.

He signed on three-year deal with Venturi and will complete a private test session with the team’s VFE 05 Gen2 car in the coming weeks.

“I’m very happy to be joining the Venturi Formula E team and the Formula E championship, which has become a magnificent competition in such a short space of time,” said Massa.

I especially like the format of race meetings, the city-centre circuits and the contact with the fans. I can’t wait to take part in testing at the end of the month.

Venturi is currently seventh in the 2017/18 FE teams’ standings.

“It’s an honour to welcome Felipe to the Venturi family, said Pastor Venturi president. I needed him, his experience, his speed, and his openness. Formula E is extremely complex to set up and drive.”
