50% Engine Efficiency

This is the first time in the history of cars that an internal combustion engine is more efficient than wasteful. See the video below:

Amazing engineering, F1 tech always eventually makes it into production for road cars, it's just a shame the electric revolution is on the horizon, as by the time this tech is ready for the road, I should imagine alot of people will be considering an EV.

That's very interesting. I wonder who the lady doing the interview is and if she is an engineering type and got all the subtle details.

Realize that F1 engines are not intended to be put into a consumer vehicle, or last 200,000 miles. If they last one race, then they're a success.

Buy yeah, ICE is making big advances, as are EVs. Great times we're in!
