Formula E chief Alejandro Agag predicts his series could be the only viable championship left by 2040, "because the world will be electric".

Car giants such as Audi, Jaguar and Renault are already involved in the series, with Mercedes and Porsche to follow in coming seasons.

In an interview with ESPN, Agag said: "I think Formula E is going to get really, really big.

"I believe that in 20, 30, 40 years, we will be the only motorsport out there. There may be others, but we will be probably the main motorsport because the world will be electric.

"If the world is not electric in 20 or 30 years, we are in trouble, so even if that happens then Formula E will be the championship of the cars."

"We are far beyond our expectations from when we launched the project," he said.

"To sign a title partnership like this, with a company like ABB, it's another huge step.

"We wouldn't have imagined this when we started the project, so we keep getting good surprises, so I think that probably means that we are moving in the right direction."
