In a rare interview, Formula E’s co-founder, deputy CEO and chief championship officer Alberto Longo talks to Sam Smith and Andrew van de Burgt about the stressful recent months under the global pandemic.
Longo goes into detail about how Formula E fought to get its 2019-20 calendar re-animated after it was suspended in March after five rounds.
Also addressed in the latest FE podcast is the next calendar, which begins at Santiago in January 2021 – when the series gets full FIA world championship status.
Possible new cities that could come on to the schedule for the 2021-22 campaign are also discussed, as are the future prospects of city centre racing in light of the COVID-19 crisis this year.
Longo also goes in-depth into Formula E’s continued success and how manufacturers have flocked to it in recent years.
