DS Virgin Racing Formula E Team

When the FIA announced it was launching an electric racing series, Virgin knew at once it wanted to be part of it - and it chose Sam to help spark its success.

The team said: "Motor vehicles are the single biggest source of pollution in the world. The more we race to advance Formula E tech, the better your own electric cars will be. This is the race where everyone gets to win in the end."

Virgin founder Sir Richard Branson added: "Sam is a proven race winner - let sparks fly!"
