The ROKiT Venturi Racing ABB FIA Formula E Team announced on Thursday that Team Principal Susie Wolff, who has been with the outfit since 2018 and oversaw their best season to date in season seven with two wins for the Monaco-based team has been promoted to the role of CEO.
Speaking about the news, Wolff said:
“After serving as Team Principal for the past three years, the timing feels right for this change. Since taking on this role in 2018, I have experienced a great sense of pride and achievement from how we have gone from strength to strength as an organisation. Since joining the team last year, Jérôme has made a positive impact and I know that I’m leaving the team operations in very capable hands as Formula E advances towards its third generation of competition in Season 9.”Susie Wolff

“I’m grateful to the team for entrusting me with this opportunity. As Susie’s successor as Team Principal, I know that I have big shoes to fill and I’m someone who has always relished a new challenge. Over the past 12 months, I have learnt a lot from Susie, and I believe that together, we will continue to make an incredibly strong team. This team dynamic resulted in us achieving our most successful campaign to date which is a fantastic foundation to build upon for the future. With Edo and Lucas in the car next season, and after our form from Season 7, the whole team is feeling positive and very motivated to get back out on track, working together towards another successful Championship.”
