After securing seventh place on the Formula E World Teams’ Championship in ” season seven “, Venturi has taken over services of one of the biggest references in the competition: Lucas di Grassi. With this addition, the team will be looking to win both titles next season.
The team from Principality of Monaco did a good job with Edoardo Mortara in 2021, who arrived at the final race in Berlin with great possibilities of winning the title. But an unexpected accident at the start of the race left him with no chance. Even with no points, he finished runner-up (92 points), seven points behind the champion, Nyck de Vries.
But it was Norman Nato who did not have the best of times. The Frenchman was only able to collect 54 points, 25 of which he obtained by winning the last and eventful race of the season.

So, for Season Eight, ROKiT Venturi Racing has formed a duo that will seek scoring points not achieved in 2021, with di Grassi and Mortara.
Lucas was left with no team after Audi ABT’s departure, an event that has been taken advantage of by Venturi to practically “ensure” a good amount of points with the Brazilian veteran, who was alive at the last E-Prix and knows what it’s like to win a title (2016/2017).
Venturi for Glory
With the new acquisition, Venturi will seek to position itself as one of the strongest teams in single-seater electric racing. After the departure of BMW and Audi ABT, the team will undoubtedly have a unique opportunity to make history.
The Formula E World Championship will return to tracks on January 28 and 29 in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, which will be the last season in the series with the second generation of vehicles (Gen2), opening the doors to a new lineup of electric vehicles with considerable improvements.
