Now that car manufactures are queuing up to get involved In Formula-E as a test bed for there new electric road cars is it just a matter of time before F1 becomes electric?

Maybe Dyson as they are now doing an electric car will even fit one with a vac to clean the track as they drive.

I fear long term for all living species safety with electric cars as they are so quiet.

Hopefully too battery life may get improved eventually as rechargeable batteries are the pain in my life.......they all start off well but soon fade after a while to the point where they need replacing and that ain't ever cheap.

Steve, it seems the new gen 2 cars have battery type the can run the cars for the 45min duration of the full race at speeds up to 175MPH, double of that of the previous year withy only 20% weight increase.
Progress seems is fast.

Yes electric cars are quiet, nearly hit a deer on the way back from the local water hole.

Slow speeds, have a audio warning under 10MPH I think for alerting but never heard my car, must be going deaf!
Must get a Dyson to go with the robot mower that seems to plot its course around the lawn and returns to its docking point when it needs a charge .
