Things always happen faster than people think. The uptake of EVs is massive and the sales of ICE cars are crashing. Who would buy a new diesel car now? Certainly the tax benefits to business users are massive for EVs.
I think F1 could be left out on a limb with their stupid hybrid tech.

Fine by me if F1 went full electric. Imagine what could be achieved if they did. Same for hydrogen.
Formula e is just an electric go cart race not technology race.

I think Hydrogen is probably a better bet. Not for road cars where it's pointless but at least you still have a sort of engine and a tank of fuel. Ultimately, like with a train, the engine is not directly connected to the wheels but one thing is for sure. Burning oil is on the way out and very soon. So F1 has to react in some way. It's like Lexus and their 'self charging hybrid'. It's simply not possible. They are suggesting they have mastered perpetual motion. The motion comes from burning oil or from harvesting energy as you roll down a hill that took burning oil to get to the top of. You can't get something for nothing unless you use natural forces such as the sun or the tides / wind etc.
