Mario Andretti argues against F1 fuel economy racing on Twitter

BY Samuel Reiman • February 10, 2015

“Last year, every car had to complete a grand prix distance, from lights out to checkered flag, on just 100kg of fuel,” notes writer Edd Straw.

Straw adds in his article that this was an “incredible feat” in Formula One, and proves that the World renown racing series remains on the leading edge of technological development.

However, while one can’t deny that it is a rather impressive technological feat, 1978 Formula One World Champion Mario Andretti was quick to rebut the argument that this was good for F1, stating on Twitter that “fans are not interested to watch fuel economy races.”
