Álvaro Buenaventura, Formula E regional director for Latin America, said: “Racing in Brazil has been an important milestone for the championship since its inception, and making our debut here in São Paulo, in such an incredible location, with two Brazilian riders on the grid and the first season of our Gen3 car makes this the perfect combination for a memorable event.”
Earlier this week, Formula E agreed a multi-year partnership with Tata Communications that will see the Indian telecoms giant become the official broadcast distribution provider of the series.
