The Belgian follows former CEO Susie Wolff through the exit door, as the Scot left the team at the end of the 2021-22 season.

Known as Venturi Racing during its eight years in the championship, the team will change its name to Maserati MSG Racing for 2022-23 – out of respect for Maserati’s entry as a manufacturer and Venturi’s renaming to Monaco Sports Group. MSG retains major shareholders Scott Swid and Jose Maria Aznar Botella, who joined the team at the end of 2020.

“After two incredible seasons, my journey with the team is coming to an end,” d’Ambrosio said.

“As I move forward towards new opportunities, I would like to thank everyone on the team for their hard work and dedication which led to our most competitive campaign to date last season.

“We thank Jérôme for his invaluable contribution over the past two seasons, during which he has played a crucial role in helping to bring our vision for the team to life,” added Swid.

“On a personal note, I’m extremely proud of what we’ve achieved together, and by putting the best people in place, we’ve built a strong team with bold aspirations for the future.

“With that in mind, I’m excited to see what the future holds for him and us as we get ever closer to the start of the next generation of Formula E racing in January.”

Venturi enjoyed its best period in Formula E under the management of Wolff and Ambrosio, while driver Edoardo Mortara contested the title in the previous two seasons of the championship.

The Swiss street specialist was second behind Nyck de Vries in 2020-21 in the drivers standings, and third overall last season as Stoffel Vandoorne and Mitch Evans eclipsed him in the latter stages of the calendar.

Venturi’s duo of Mortara and 2016-17 champion Lucas di Grassi helped the team claim the top spot in the Formula E championship, with the Monegasque outfit second overall and 24 points behind powertrain supplier Mercedes .
