F1 Cars Will Pit as EVs in 2014

As part of a series of rules changes designed to spur green-tech innovation and promote sustainability within the sport, Formula 1′s sanctioning body recently announced that, as of 2014, cars must travel on battery power only while in pit lane. Effectively, the new rules will turn every F1 car on the grid into dual-mode hybrid electric car, and force designers to build reliability into each of the cars’ existing KERS-flywheel hybrid systems (which will, presumably, continue to charge the cars’ batteries).
