F1 has been at the pinnacle of motorsport for over 70 years already and has a huge international fanbase which is climbing drastically in recent years, largely thank's to Formula 1's new approach to social media and streaming services as well as having their very own Netflix show.

But what do all F1 fans absolutely love about the sport? Well, it's the noise the car's make. Even though we are currently in the hybrid 1.6-litre V6 era which are by far not as loud, it is still substantially better than no sound at all. But with more and more electric automotive technology on the rise, what does that mean for F1?

Well, electric road-going cars are all about efficiency and so is Formula 1. As a matter of fact, F1 cars are still 40% more efficient than the most efficient road-going cars at the moment and have no reason to convert to electric just yet.
