F1 » Hembery unconvinced by value of 2017 changes

Ground effect was banned on safety grounds, rightly so, but how about a half way house? SOME ground effect, with as little skirt as required to make it work (or preferably no skirts!) and less external wing because the ground effects are there. Indy cars used to use a standard wing setup with ground effects a few years ago (and the same cars, true!), and there were no major problems overtaking there on ovals or road courses.

FE » Vergne to race in Formula E

To those who scoff at Formula E, and the new quiet F1 for that matter, this is, in many eyes, the future. In the US, Don Garlits has an electric dragster, which even the NHRA realise can be used on urban dragstrips. Why? Because it's quiet! Most circuits have noise issues, and these will only get worse in the future. I love a nice V8/V10 as much as the rest, but don't knock electric racing too much, it may be the only racing left soon!
