    #2 For sure. But I think any current or former F1 city would also be ripe. Cause of they can lure Alonso, I am sure that maybe a few others (Jenson Button) might also consider a jump at some point. :)

    #1 Hi Jeff, interesting point concerning fans! If this move happens, Agag should organize an E-Prix in Spain and capitalize on Spanish fans, no?

    This is VERY intriguing. I have been an Alonso fane since his early days with Minardi. At Bahrain in 2015, I had seats right across from the McLaren garage. You could taste the frustration then...imagine what he is feeling after 2017 testing. This move would bring many F1 fans over to Formula E. :)

    #3 Normally all cars should have exact same performance as they are supposed to have maximized parameters (line, speed, etc.). Will there be overtakings? Will AI make the difference?

    #2 Agreed, @Stephane 🐝 Fenner - If enough sensors are on the "automatic" car, including the seat bottom - I am sure they will exceed a human's capability of finding the correct line to follow, and optimize track times.

    But, to be honest, I am not sure if I would enjoy watching an autonomous race. It then becomes a technology platform, with no excitement that an un-predictable human being can bring into the competition.

    Almost like watching an expensive computer game.

    Reminds me of this old TV show:

    @Wayne Yoshida, thanks for your comment. Interesting question.
    I believe autonomous cars could exceed humans, due to the fact that sensors and computers are able to push the limits and "flirt" with the cutting edge. On the other hand, pilots feel the track and the car's reaction. They anticipate a lot...
    We will see if algorithms and calculations can "overtake" human drivers...
    Wayne Yoshida
    16/03/2017 #1 Wayne Yoshida
    Yes - "finding the limits" - a driver must always be on the edge of that envelope to wring out the best performance of any vehicle. It will be interesting to see in an autonomous car will be able to exceed a human driver capability - rather than replicate the line set by the human. Thanks for finding and sharing this great video, @Javier 🐝 beBee and @Stephane 🐝 Fenner

    Rare picture - Formula One Barcelona

    There have been plenty of β€˜aero rakes’ on view this morning. These devices use an array of probes to map airflow, and are commonly fitted behind the front tyres to measure tyre wake. The information gleaned is very useful for understanding airflow along the full length of the car. Red Bull were one of the teams making use of an aero rake this morning, with Max Verstappen (above) running a device on his RB13
