Red Robot is distributing press releases and video news releases about Formula E directly to more than 1,700 media outlets in 117 countries.

Running until June 2015, the championship takes place in ten cities – including London, Beijing and Miami.

All video content is watermarked with a unique ID, allowing Red Robot to report global uptake of content and on-air usage within news organisations.

Tim Godfrey, head of media at Formula E, said: "Our partnership with Red Robot positions Formula E at the very forefront of news distribution and guarantees exposure on a global scale via the Reuters news network.

"Their intelligent distribution mechanism coupled with Formula E’s unique outlook on content creation and distribution makes for a perfect fit."

Ronan Carey, Red Robot COO, added: "We are looking forward to helping Formula E grow awareness for the championship and developing a solid platform through which to grow over the coming years."
