KSI revealed, “it’s going to be great to see YouTube disrupt the traditional sports broadcasters.” He also added, “I can’t wait for the first race”.
Formula E chief Ali Russell explained the idea behind giving KSI the job, “Coming together with companies such as YouTube to provide new ways to watch electric racing is what separates Formula E.”
The next Formula E season will start on December 15th in Saudi Arabia and continue across countries including Chile, Mexico, China, Monaco, and Germany, concluding next July in the USA.
