There is no debate - electric will overtake.
So Formula E will become F1?
In 20 years time, if there is only autonomous racing, then i guess people will still want to watch real man operating vicious machines.
Like a guy on Sky said, F1 will become like horse racing. We changed cars for horses but some people still want to watch jockeys racing and controlling those amazing animals.
So i guess we may see F1 going back to its roots with gigantic IC engines and powerful sound. However, this means that some manufacturers may bail out.Guess F1 will be consisted of independent manufacturers like Cosworth. I just hope it won't become a spec series.
All in all, it looks like all motorsport is endangered. It's popularity going down to be at the same level as horse racing.
