It is good to be back in the forefront of motorsports with the Super Aguri team again. We are very much looking forward to the challenges that Formula E is going to throw at us. Being at the forefront of motorsports technology and developing the technology of the future is exciting. We believe that there will be a disruptive change that comes in the automotive industry through all of the different technologies coming together to create Mobility as a Service. Smart phones, urbanisation, congestion and pollution are but some of the drivers.
