Jun.15 - Jean Todt says F1 will never abandon its petrol-based origins and join Formula E as an all-electric powered series.

"It's impossible," the FIA president told La Presse newspaper.

"F1 is an absolutely different discipline," he insisted.

Todt said he is a great supporter and fan of Formula E, but he thinks F1 took the right path by heading in the hybrid direction a few years ago.

"It is a huge step forward compared to what we had before," said the Frenchman.

However, Todt also said the progress made by Formula E since its inception has been "remarkable".

"We have a dozen manufacturers who want to get involved, and have been approached by some of the biggest cities in the world," he said.

"Today there are brands like Renault that are in F1 and Formula E."

And Todt was also quoted by Le Journal de Montreal: "I am confident that one day Ferrari will follow suit, and we would like to see that."

    Just look at the fans that are at the races do THEY like this HYBRID CRAPP the answer is NO .
    I think what needs to happen next is to get rid of ( Jean Todt ) he is just simply A real IDIOT and
    was he in favor of these Hybrids during the time he was the Ferrari Manager from 1993 - 2008
    the answer is HELL NO .

    When will F 1 Fans like myself go to another F1 Race ( when WE SEE REAL ENGINES ) come back to where they should have NEVER been abandoned , look At other types of Auto Racing are there Hybrids in Indy Racing ( NO ) how about Nascar ( NO ) and in the ISMA Series ( NO ) so why the HELL are they in Formula One , ( this should NOT be A decision by one person ) it should be up to the
    Formula One constructers ( and the last time I looked ) THEY CAN'T STAND THESE HYBRIDS .
