Green Venom - Formula 1 ECO
The 2008/09 season had the biggest rule changes in Formula 1 
history. Non of the changes were seriously future thinking!
Due to the economy crisis also Formula 1 is on the brink of a breakdown. It is time for a big change!

Using some features of past cars, combined with high end technology of today we found a very new look to the Formula 1 race car.
The shape of the car is inspired by the Green Mamba, due to it´s sneak and agile look.
By using a 3-Phase AC Induction electric motor and Lithium-Sulfur batteries you gain a lot of free space and can therefor make the car smaller, lighter and faster.

We wanted to make the Formula 1 exciting again like in the old days of Juan Manuel Fangio, Jim Clark, Stirling Moss, Ayrton Senna, Niki Lauda. Dynamic and environmentally friendly to a new technologic level and a new image of Formula 1.
