Imagining the future of F1: Human Ignition (Ep.2)

Wednesday 23rd April 2014, 17:06 by TF1T Staff 

Formula 1 is an ever changing and adapting sport. The cars have come a long way since the sports beginnings back in the 1950s with the introduction of aerodynamics, ground-effect and now hybrid-engines.

What might the distant future hold for the sport? As part of a collaboration between energy-drink Burn, Lotus and a handful of designers, we take a look at some extreme examples.

In the second episode of 'Human Ignition', socio-ecological architecture firm Terreform are on a mission to turn dull, one-dimensional circuit design on its head to make the track a character of its own.

In this second episode of Human Ignition Sci-Fi creeps closer to reality — but is their vision a feasible one? Best keep an open mind.

Terreform's "intelligent" track has set new standards of F1 futurism. Where can we go next? Find out in Human Ignition - Episode 3, out on April 25.
