Agag has reportedly been speaking with the Brazilian who retired from Formula 1 at the end of the 2017 seaon about joining the all-electric series.

“I know Felipe, I’ve been talking to him a lot”. he said, before confirming that Massa only wants to be part of the series if he has the opportunity to win.

“Felipe is a driver who wants to win and I totally understand that. So, we will help him, if we can, to get a really competitive drive.”
