“As a founding member of Envision Virgin Racing I’ve been part of the Formula E Championship since the very beginning and I’ve been able to witness the incredible growth of the sport. I’m looking forward to taking over the role as Chairman for the upcoming two seasons and contribute to our continued success.”

He added: “Many of the FETAMA members have worked within the sport since the early days so we’re a very collaborative group and all hold similar ideals for the championship. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my predecessor James Barclay, for his excellent leadership over the last two seasons as Chairman and his continued support as I undertake this new role.”
