Green Goes Mean? Motorsports Firms to Build Hybrid F1 Car

FIA president Max Moseley has already said some form of regenerative braking system that powers a burst-of-speed system is the future for Formula One (a comment that caused more than a few FIA underlings to spit-take their Ch teauneuf du Pape). Now, two motorsports technology firms are teaming up to build the first hybrid-drive Formula car. Formula Renault builder Tatuus will build a concept designed by the technologists at N.Technology. Could a new "green" series be in the offing, or will Moseley get his F1 wish? Stay jacked into the eco-matrix for updates.
