The head of the UN framework Convention on climate change Christiana Figueres believes that Formula 1 and all the other racing categories, which remain committed to internal combustion engines, will soon become part of history.
This statement Figueres, which is part of the new Advisory Board of Formula E along with a Motorsport legend Alain Prost made at the event dedicated to the contract with ABB, which has become the title sponsor of the electric racing series.
“We owe a lot to the internal combustion engine, said Figueres at a press conference in London. – But I urge you to mark this date (when the internal combustion engine will be history). We are now in the race for the future, seek to decarbonise the world. This process is not stopped, and only a matter of time when this will happen.”

General promoter of Formula E Alejandro Agag added: “I Think in 20, 30 or 40 years from the current racing series will only have Formula E. Maybe there will be other series, but our League will be the main, because everyone will be on the motors. If in the next 20-30 years electrification will not happen, then we will have problems”.
