Ahead of pre-season testing getting underway on Tuesday, Maserati MSG Racing unveiled their new livery for season 10, which does differ from their previous design.

Maserati showed their new livery to the world on Monday morning, less than 24 hours before the cars are released onto the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia. Whilst most of the colour scheme and design from season nine has been retained, there has been a dramatic change to how the car looks at the rear.

The Maserati Tipo Folgore now features Rame Falgore at the rear of the car, in what is an eye-catching addition to the Monte-Carlo-based team’s livery. Rame Falgore (Copper Glance) being added to the livery is a nod to the Italian manufacturer’s new era of electric vehicles. These will make up the company’s entire range by 2030.

Adding copper detailing to the rear of their season 10 challenger is a class touch by Maserati, who continue to look to the future both on the circuit and off of it. One feature which does appear to have been removed is the LGBTQ+ flag, which was seen on the team’s front wing endplates in season nine and was something which they were praised for.

It was Maserati who actually topped pre-season testing almost 12 months ago, courtesy of Maximilian Günther. The German has been retained for Formula E’s centurion campaign but will now be partnered by the only rookie on the grid, Formula 2 graduate Jehan Daruvala.

Despite topping testing ahead of season nine, Maserati started the 2022/23 campaign woefully, before coming to life in Berlin. From the Berlin E-Prix onwards, Maserati boasted real pace, to the extent that Günther topped every session bar one across the two races in Jakarta.

Whilst Daruvala will need time to settle into Maserati and into Formula E, Günther will be hoping to start the new season the way he ended the recently completed season. Should he do this and show immediate pace in Mexico City, then he could very well be a championship outsider.
