After reaching the penultimate step of the podium on only his second outing in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, Mortara remains with Venturi for a second season alongside teammate Felipe Massa.
Born in Geneva in 1987, the Swiss driver first stepped up to Formula driving in 2006, starting out in Formula Renault, before graduating to the Formula Three Euroseries. As a former champion in the series, Mortara was one of two drivers to win the prestigious Macau Grand Prix twice, having achieved back-to-back victories in 2009 and 2010.
Moving to the German DTM Championship in 2011, Mortara competed in the series until his debut with Venturi Formula E team ahead of the 2017/18 season. After a promising start to the season when he finished second in Hong Kong in only his second Formula E race, the Swiss driver fell back, finishing the season in 13th place. The 2018/19 season sees Mortara remain with the Monegasque team alongside teammate Felipe Massa.
