Following Venturi Racing’s best-ever season in Formula E, the CEO of the team Susie Wolff has announced she would be stepping down from her position following the tie-up between Italian car manufacturer Maserati and Venturi for the next FE season.


Wolff initially joined the team as team principal but she became CEO after former F1 driver Jerome D’Ambrosio took up the role of team principal. Her initial signing was part of a three-year-long plan to increase the team’s profile, along with its standing within the electric series.


As CEO, Wolff watched as Venturi scored second place in the teams’ championship, behind only Mercedes EQ. Driver Edoardo Mortara eventually finished third in the drivers’ championship; both best-ever results for the team.

Following the end of the final race of the season, the Seoul E-Prix, Wolff took to her social media to announce she would be leaving at the end of the season.


She stated on Instagram: "As the most successful season in Venturi FE's history comes to an end, so does my personal journey with the team and Formula E.


"When I joined Venturi Racing, my goal was to build a team that was not just successful on track but stood for a greater purpose.


"Little did I know four years ago the scale of the challenges we would face as a team. It was these tough moments that defined the resilience, faith, and trust that we have built in each other: to come from racing at the back to consistently fighting for victories and titles."


She added: "Thank you Gildo Pastor for your vision and belief in the team. Also Alejandro Agag and everyone in Formula E for four great seasons of racing."
