The future of Formula 1 racing: Green Hybrid Power

Formula 1 is a circus of speed, reliability and astounding power.

FIA will introduce a next-generation hybrid system to F1 cars from the 2013 season onwards.

Adam Parr, Williams team boss said this will allow them to run on electric power alone when driving through the pits.

Some crucial figures in F1 such as Bernie Eccleston and the head of Ferrari are known to have doubts about introducing too much electric power because of the perceived drop in performance.

F1 does already use clean KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems), where the kinetic energy of the vehicles are recovered to further boost up their speeds for overtaking maneuver.

Moreover, with the paradigm shifting in the corresponding automotive industry, the F1 being an epitome of vehicular eminence has to logically proceed with the ‘green’ progression.

The unique allure of hybrid cars will be counted as an important factor.
