The Teslas for example are pretty powerful, I don't see why you couldn't make an even lighter and faster single-seater similar to, say, F3. Could make for an interesting challenge. It does not take combustion engines to race you know.

Now its clear why JT left Ferrari, he's gone as mad as a box of frogs..

Berni E implied the fans would be turned off by the lack of noise a 4 cylinder F1 car would make (I agreed with him, not that I agree with much he has to say) but I cant wait for Bernie's response to this gem he's going to take the p*** out of the FIA & Todt.

Can you lads not read? This isnt about making F1 electric. Its about having an FIA sanctioned series similar to F1 that uses electric power. I dont see the problem. Its certainly better than having them interfere with F1 with experimental rules.

And if electric racing cars are made viable it is good for everyone as that technology will trickle down and result in cheap motoring.
