Formula E boss wants Ferrari

Formula E boss Alejandro Agag has urged Ferrari to enter the all-electric series.

Renault have been part of the competition since its debut in 2014 and Agag is hopeful that the iconic F1 team will follow suit in the near future.

“Ferrari in Formula E is quite possible,” Agag told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “We already have Renault, Audi, Jaguar, BMW are ready to enter, other car manufacturers like Mercedes think seriously about us.

“Three years ago, nobody could have imagined that. In Italy there are Fiat, Maserati, Alfa Romeo. I read that Marchionne is always speaking of Alfa Romeo’s return. We would welcome them with open arms.

“We are in the third year. It’s a great signal that Jaguar is coming. We are looking at new races in Hong Kong, New York, Montreal and Marrakech. We want to grow and thrive – I have a lot to do here.”

Certainly Marchionne has been quoted on several occasions about one of Italy’s prestige car makers becoming involved in Formula E, whether that would be Ferrari remains to be seen, it may well be an opening to bring back Alfa Romeo or Maserati to racing would be seen as a better prospect, only time will tell but certainly with the growth in Formula E continuing, getting involved sooner rather than later would be a good idea for the Italian carmakers.
