"As a racing driver - and as someone with a deep interest in content creation and the influencer world - I understand how competitive a career in sport can be and the perseverance, dedication and passion required to find opportunities to break into the industry."

“I'm excited to be working with Formula E acknowledging, developing and supporting young, rising talent. For the contestants, this will be an amazing opportunity to be part of the motorsports community and be recognised for their talents with the goal of becoming a presenter or commentator."

Vietnamese professional athlete and LGBTQ activist Amazin LeThi is the final personality to join the judging panel. Since retiring as a weightlifter, Amazin has sought to harness sport's power for change to campaign for LGBTQ equality and uses her influence to help support LGBTQ youth who are going through difficulties of their own.
