After Susie Wolff, Jérôme d’Ambrosio also left the Venturi team in Formula E – which from next season will be a Maserati design officially called Maserati MSG Racing (Monaco Sports Group).
A few weeks after it was announced that team manager Wolff would be stepping down, it was revealed that deputy team boss d’Ambrosio had also left. The changes were announced in a statement in recent days.
The former Belgian rider said: ‘After two incredible seasons, my journey with the team is coming to an end. As I move forward to pursue new opportunities, I would like to thank everyone in the team for their hard work and dedication, which has led us to our most competitive campaign so far this past season. I would also like to thank Susie, Scott [Swid, principal proprietário do MSG] and José for entrusting me with the leadership of the organization as a team leader. It was a great opportunity and I couldn’t have asked for a better environment to move forward since my racing career. I wish the team all the best as they head into a new championship era.’
From Maserati MSG Racing, Swid said: ‘We thank Jérôme for his great contribution over the last two seasons, where he has played a key role in helping us bring our vision to the team. Personally, I am very proud of what we have achieved together, and by hiring the best people, we have created a strong team with strong prospects for the future. With that in mind, I’m excited to see what the future holds for him and us as we get closer to the start of the next generation competition in January.’
