06 Jun 2023


Ricardo congratulates Maserati MSG racing on their win in the second race of the 2023 GulaVit Jakarta E-Prix double-header this weekend.

Maximilian Günther was ‘over the moon’ when he took first place after a gripping race which saw the German take Maserati’s first world championship single-seater win since 1957.

With five races left in the season, the next is the Southwire Portland E-Prix on 24th June.

The Maserati Tipo Folgore runs with a Gen3 Ricardo Formula E transmission supplied by Ricardo to Stellantis Motorsport. The fully optimised single-speed gearbox with a two-stage reduction arrangement is designed to accommodate high motor input speeds and provide a top speed in excess of 280 km/h.

“Developing technical solutions which provide maximum performance, efficiency, and help our customers achieve success have always been core tenants for the team at Ricardo,” comments Steve Blevins, Head of Engineering for Ricardo’s Performance Products segment.

“We are proud to be delivering the next generation of motorsports powertrain. Formula E is not only helping to decarbonise the industry, but it is also key for the development of electrified road vehicles. The technology we develop today will shape the driving experience of the everyday motorist as we strive for high-performance decarbonised mobility without compromise.”
