    The New Face of Motorsports with Lucas Di Grassi

    鈥淒efinitely, this will be part of a new world of how motorsport will be seen and done in the future. I don't think all motorsports is going to go this way. But again, sports are changing - fan experience, TV, the way you stream, what people are interested in, what brands are actually looking to sponsor. So all of this is evolving very fast. So definitely I think there is a very big opportunity for Extreme E and Formula E to grow within this new experience鈥
