These rules really feel like a step backwards and the biggest hint of that is the heavy lumbering Aston Martin that doesn't even bother to have standard hybrid system the actual road car does.

Besides electrification and/or other alternative power sources extremely likely will lead back to LMP1 esq technology war. The only thing these rules lead is balance of performance and complaining and sandbagging.
It is the future, and I agree. But when powered ships came along, sailing remained as a sport, it just became irrelevant to ship design and production.

Motorsport can do the same. Electric is the future of transportation. It doesn't have to be the future of motorsport.
