Jean Todt has played down suggestions Formula 1 could switch to an all-electric series in the future.

Recently, Liberty Media sporting boss Ross Brawn said there is "nothing to stop" the pinnacle of motor racing following the lead of Formula E.

'That will not happen'

But FIA president Todt said that notion is "nonsense".

"That will not happen. We're talking about two completely different racing series. Formula E cars cannot develop the same speed as in F1. It's one of the reasons the races are in the cities - it would not be interesting to see them at Monza for example.

However, Formula E is developing well. The race distance can now be covered by one car. This shows that motor racing can not only be a show, but also a laboratory.

But spending time comparing Formula E and F1 is just boring," Todt added.
