McLaren's MP4-X: The future of F1?
McLaren unveiled its MPX-4 - what it thinks will the future F1 car.
Main differences - they have taken an unequivocal stand on the enclosed/ open cockpit debate and voted strongly for the former. The enclosed cockpit is intelligent with a multitude of features & screens. Cant help think that shortly your video game playing experience might actually prepare you for an F1 career! EA Sports, are you listening?
THe other is the power train - hybrid. I think it will be inevitable that hybrids & eventually all electric will dominate. I will be very sad when the day comes when the manic howl of an F1 car is silenced. Drink it up folks, when you can!
