Alejandro-Agag“We are big fans of Formula One and whoever tries to compete with Formula One will fail.”

Alejandro Agag, head of Formula E, points out the difference between the original and the electric racing series. The latter is much smaller but also serves the bigger cause of reducing pollution in cities like Beijing, where the Formula E premieres this month to send out “a strong message,” Agag said.

Aguri-Suzuki“Fans may feel something is missing at first but I believe Formula E will be a kind of experimental lab for F1 in the near future.”

Aguri Suzuki, former Formula One driver is now head of Team Amlin Aguri in the Formula E, which he thinks will be beneficial for F1 eventually.

Ashvin-Chotai“There’s a core management team at Nissan and Andy Palmer was a very crucial part of it. He had a lot of responsibilities and a lot of functions under his umbrella. To lose somebody like him is a big blow to Nissan.”

Ashvin Chotai, MD of Researcher Intelligence Automotive Asia, is among analysts who see the leaving of Andy Palmer and other top executives at Nissan as worrying.
