Racing After The Pandemic, Mixed Sex Drivers in Extreme E and Formula E's Future with F1 - Alejandro Agag Interview

May 04, 2020, 11:57 AM

Coming up on this edition of the show is an interview with Alejandro Agag, the founder and chairman of Formula E and also the founder and CEO of Extreme E. The all-electric off road racing series is set to kick off in January where it will visit Senegal, Saudi Arabia, Nepal, Greenland and Brazil. The championship has also announced that each team will run both a male and female driver. This move immediately drew criticism on social media, so we give Alejandro the opportunity to offer his reply to those sceptics. We also chat through why the unease around social gatherings, resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, might fundamentally change the setup of race meetings in the future.
