In a newly released video for Formula E, Lucas di Grassi explains everything that appeals to him about one of the youngest forms of motorsport.

Early on, he admits that he was skeptical of the series, saying that he didn’t understand racing without a big, roaring engine behind him.

“But in the end,” says di Grassi, “racing is about competing with the finest, working with the best partners.”

The series, he says, “sounds like the future.” The video is an intense and beautiful look into the world of Formula E and will make you want to fly to next gorgeous race.

Di Grassi returns to electric racing in early July, in  London, where he will fight to hold on to his lead in the driver’s championship.
