Is This The Future of F1? McLaren Unveils Its Wild Vision For 2050



Of course, no one can read the future. But it doesn’t stop us trying. And McLaren is the latest to do so, or rather the F1 team’s sister company McLaren Applied Technologies is, with a multi-faceted concept of what it thinks Formula 1 could be like in 2050. Concept cars from “the future” are nothing new; McLaren itself produced one in the MP4-X in late 2015. But this latest vision goes way beyond that. McLaren Applied Technologies–which among various activities produces the ECUs for F1, IndyCar and NASCAR–has ‘conducted extensive research’ to form it all, including looking at various technological, economic and other trends such as in vehicle policy, has gauged the views of fans and even has completed workshops with MA and PhD students, all to extrapolate how these could shape the F1 of the mid-part of this century. And it’s not entirely fanciful, as many of the matters are already prominent in motoring debates; not least automation, artificial intelligence and electrification.

Me too playing with Slot Cars is much more fun than watching F1.
