    No, he didn't but he could quite easily. The club that runs the track didn't allow him to try and set a record because they knew he would. Sebs record stood for 5 years, guess what, that tech has improved too. And yet again, there is no doubt that EV's have an advantage over a short course. It's when they try and do endurance racing that they utterly fail at. Like I said, they have to use TWO cars to go one third the distance of a regular F1 car. That is a fact that is going to bitch slap you for years.

    LOL Again, by 2025, the EV's will be racing and dominating in every venue that they are not outlawed in. And why would the Pikes Peak organizers not let that person run? Care to post a link?

    No, they won't. Battery technology could increase five fold (theoretically impossible) and they would still not be able to go full race distance in F1 at full race speeds. Le Mans would be a joke. Like I said, petrol heads love hybrid technology, but pure EV is useful for short distances only.

    Probably because of the residual electricity that will electrocute the poor sucker who manages to ground himself. The safety protocols in place in F1 to prevent a fatality with the hybrid tech is quite strict.

    But how many people care? About 27?

    The entire world knows EV'S have these insane levels of performance for many years now. But as usual, none of the progressives ever factor in costs to anything in life ( it's a fascinating thinking fuck-up :2up: ). Nobody wants electric vehicles because the price is astronomical AND the reliability is shit. We know that. But those factors are completely ignored by the progressive. But guess what? Those factors are everything to a huge majority.:113::cul2::cul2:. Who think EV's are ghey.

    Oh and by the way.....skeptics have been hearing the gaudy aspirations of battery technology in here for 10 years. The clean k00ks get giddy every time they post up a link.....its hysterical.:spinner:. They are all excited and taking bows in between spiking the football......for 10 years now!

    The batteries still blow!!:springbed::springbed::sleep:

    Tesla is continuing to see demand for its first mass market car, the Model 3, with an average of 1,800 new orders a day.

    But on its quarterly earnings call, CEO Elon Musk revealed about 63,000 people have cancelled their Model 3 preorders. The number of orders went from approximately 518,000 to 455,000, Musk said.

    “Those cancellations occurred over the course of more than a year,” Musk said on the call. “I think [these numbers] are inconsequential. With a small amount of effort we can easily drive the Model 3 reservation number to something much higher but there’s no point. It’s like if you’re a restaurant and you’re serving hamburgers and there’s like an hour and a half wait for hamburgers, do you really want to encourage more people to order more hamburgers?”

    Tesla saw about 63,000 cancellations of Model 3 preorders

    What other manufacturer has a backlog of 455,000 orders, with 1800 new orders a month, in spite of the fact that there will likely be at least a year or more wait for the vehicle?

    Every other manufacturer has the ability to make as many cars as they need, as quickly as they need. You are claiming an inability to build cars in a timely manner, as a strength. It's the exact opposite which if you knew anything about manufacturing, would be self evident.
