Sony Sports Network has a history with Formula E, having aired its content during the fourth, fifth, and sixth seasons. To launch the partnership, Sony Sports Network has launched a campaign promoting the Championship spotlighting India’s own Jehan Daruvala from Maserati MSG racing. The campaign, featuring Jehan as “Mumbai Ka Chokra,” aims to localize Formula E and garner audience support with the rallying cry: “The Ride has just begun.”
