What happens when the boss of a trail-blazing global racing series teams up with a tech entrepreneur with $500million burning a hole in his back pocket? Driverless car racing. Obviously.
“For me, the motor industry is going in three directions: electric, connected and driverless,” says Formula E chief Alejandro Agag, when we ask him about the future of the sport and the headline-grabbing Roborace initiative. “We are already electric. Fine. We have to be more connected. We’re working on it. And then – driverless. We announced Roborace, which is a great addition to our package. It puts us where the future is going, where the industry is investing billions.”
