Agag Pleased With Mounting Interest From Companies, Drivers Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag said he is satisfied with how the "management of the electric car racing series is going" ahead of Formula E's debut next year, according to Victor García of EL CONFIDENCIAL.
Agag: "All is going as scheduled. Having businesses as important as McLaren, Williams, Renault, Michelin, DHL, Tag-Heuer, Qualcomm... it gives a great boost." These "new 'green' races are creating interest." The interest "is not only from the business point of view of big, multi-national companies and different cities behind the project, but also from athletes, and there is a line of former F1 pilots currently waiting to see if they will form part of the starting grid in Sept. '14."
There will be "three races in Europe, two apiece in South America and the U.S. and three in Asia." Motorsports governing body FIA will release the schedule in a few days for the 10 urban Grand Prix "scheduled for between June and September of next year." The mayors of these cities "want to connect the images of their cities to the strength of clean energy without using crude oil." EL CONFIDENCIAL
