The future of motorsport or is it just boring?

Sebastian Vettel was quoted in Sportsmole as saying he has no interest in Formula E as it is “not very exciting”. He apparently said “To me, this is not the future. E-mobility is currently very popular in the world, but anyone who is honest and identifies with motor racing does not think much of Formula E”.  “The cars are not very fast and may drivers who drive there tell me that the driving is not very exciting."

A lot of big manufacturers have been drawn to FE recently and it seems to be on the up, with many touting it as the future of motorsport. But is Vettel right? 

Is FE just too boring to really take off?

Motorsport is about pushing

Motorsport is about pushing engineering, technology, human skill and bravery to their absolute limits. Formula E is about promoting sustainability. Enough said

I actually really like the

I actually really like the street circuits and with all the big manufacturers jumping on board I'm really interested to see where the series goes, but for now in terms of speed and sport there is just no contest. 

F1 is boring in plenty of races but you never forget how fast they're going and what they're putting themselves through. A boring race in FE doesn't have that.

It might be the future but the cars are going to need to get much much faster

The street circuits are cool

The street circuits are cool but it just doesn't do it for me. Buemi losing his temper last season was about as dramatic as it got. It's like watching a friendly football match, can be entertaining but ultimately it's a bit meh .. whereas watching Vettel, Hamilton, Verstappen etc properly racing is just different league, same as MotoGP. Different level.

Formula E is ok as it is but in its current form NO WAY is it the future of motorsport
