TEAMS & DRIVERS: Agag said Formula E will announce four new teams but he did not announce who they were, nor did he name any new drivers. Agag told SBD Global the new teams “will be announced soon.” Those will include teams from England, Japan and France. Formula E will race its inaugural season with a total of 10 teams as the series has about 25 requests for the remaining two slots, Agag said. In terms of drivers, he said that they have received “a lot of interest from experienced drivers.” The prize purse of $5M may also convince well-known drivers to join the series.
LONDON TROUBLES: Recent reports suggested that Formula E is encountering some troubles in finding a suitable venue for Formula E’s London race. Agag: “We have three options in London. It’s not really trouble; it’s just the normal bureaucratic process. I think out of those three, two are looking really good. However, I think we will wait a little bit until we announce the exact venue of the London race."
