I predict on major highways that overhead catenary charging will top up the batteries on the roll so the recharging problem goes away.
Sorry, didn't respond as I really didn't have anything to add. I mostly mentioned trucks above just because that seems to be where that company that is pushing their two stroke diesel is focused and it is not motorsports. Even then, it seems most of their "recent" stuff is from a few years a go. So they don't seem to be getting traction. I am personally curious to see how things go for long haul electric trucks (that concept does seem to have traction) and also think they may also be a target for automated driving systems? But that is a bit off topic.

Long haul trucking automated and mostly at night. Would free up a lot of daytime motorway capacity...

They're called trains on a railway network.

Great, but the guys on the end of the local delivery don't like you deciding it's all overnight work. Overnight is HARD to staff, hard to maintain employees and costs much more. The motorway traffic you see is mostly much shorter drive distancing than you think and is meant to deliver the product on the truck to an operation mostly open during the day. So the truck is still going to be on the road during the days. Or it is very specialized movement, rail is much cleaner and with modular truck and trailers cheaper than a guy and truck for thousands of miles. Rail to ship, truck to deliver.

Anyway, back to the topic.


I just think it would be a pity for F1 to be dragged down by car manufacturers who are desperately clinging on to a world that won't exist any more in a few years time (I'm talking about mid to high-end ICE cars). Hybrid might sound very modern, but in fact the desire to hold on to it is born from an overly conservative business approach and their inability to change quickly enough.


It would be more forward thinking to acknowledge this and choose an engine formula based on more sensible criteria.
