Alexander Agag, president and founder of the Formula E, said in an interview to the Autosport medium that the Formula 1 You will not be able to switch to electricity for several more years, since your category has an exclusive contract with the International Automobile Federation (FIA). This contradicts the words of the Formula 1 director, who said that in 2031 there will be electric cars: “It’s a mistake”, Agag pointed out.
Formula 1 continues to evolve by leaps and bounds both technologically and ecologically. Over the years, more and less technological regulations were added. However, many point out that in the coming seasons of Formula 1, the cars will go on to become electric, as in Formula E.
“Ross Brown He said Formula 1 could go electric in 10 years, and they basically can’t. Formula E has an exclusive license with the FIA for 25 seasons, and we’ve only done four. So the first Formula 1 that could be electric is in 2039, if we don’t renew our agreement with the FIA then, but I don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t renew, ”Agag said bluntly.
On the other hand, Agag remarked that the category should speak with him to make an agreement with the FIA in the future. “We have exclusivity until at least 2039, so there will be no electric Formula 1 until then. If you want to talk to me, then of course it’s a different question. I am always willing to talk to people, but without talking to me there is no way they can do something totally electric ”.
Finally, Agag believes that Brown’s words were not a message, although his words are on the wrong track. “I don’t think they should be. I don’t know, but it’s probably a mistake. I think we are very different and we are totally compatible. There is no competition at all, they are two completely compatible series. I have a great admiration for Ross Brawn, but in this case he simply got the math wrong, “he said.
