My ONLY problem with Formula E:

What the hell are people going to listen to...? F1 sounds awesome and the sound sets the scene.
GP 2 is OK to watch, but does anyone ACTUALLY watch GP3? And if they do, who actually listens with the sound on as the cars sound terrible. These will have basically NO sound at all!

we like it or not guys this is the future. those green movement fascists that asks you to bath in less than 2 minutes while they own even private planes will have their way on this time. Great to see di Grassi there again he was the best guy to partner Kimi in Lotus this year!

sorry, but you would need an advanced fuel cell to run purely electric. Better to run an uber effecient power generator and deliver that electricity to the four wheels/motor-generators which can deliver and reclaim (KERS-Braking) energy.

oh yes, and the green fascists are also known as 'wings over the world' as in -- HG Well's things to come. Also featured in brave new world :) Green is the religion, 'science' is the preacher, the men behind the curtains are the ones who pull the strings :) the sheep are the ones staring at the shadows (allegory of the cave-plato) cast by the puppets, being pulled by the strings.
