Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag urged Ferrari to "enter the all-electric series." Earlier in the week, FIA President Jean Todt "expressed satisfaction" that Renault is involved in both F1 and Formula E. Todt said, "I am confident that one day Ferrari will follow suit, and we would like to see that." That is a sentiment that Agag "shares as well." He said, "Ferrari in Formula E is quite possible" (AUTO WEEK, 6/16).
