In a clip slightly more than 3 minutes on Monday, FIA Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag spoke with CNBC to hit the basics of the new all-electric open-wheel championship that premieres in September.

“I always have this comparison … we are here, at this moment [while holding an old, heavy, early generation cell phone],” Agag said during the interview, roughly at the 0:50 mark. “I’m holding an old school [phone]. Now look where we are today after 25 years.”
