Thank you Anthony Le Bleis!
1) "Formula 1 is the NASA of the motor vehicle" and the most useful technological breakthroughs are now part of the cars that travel our roads. I think it will always be a laboratory for the future mobility.
2) I think motorsport should contribute to technological progress, "green" in particular and security of course. It must also be a model for sustainable mobility by developing behaviors such as respect and loyalty between all its actors.
3) One can cite the principle of VTEC engine or engine "two in one" which saves fuel and the turbo. Lotus was the first to introduce the "active" suspension. And this is the F1 who developed the brake discs of carbon fiber for racing cars. But a large number of technological innovations from motorsport will never meet on industrial chains.
Oddly enough, the ABS (Anti-lock for Breaking System) is not from motorsport but laboratories of aviation companies that have developed this technology in the 50s. (Some sources about F1: www.laberezina.com)
I may not be a "high level expert" but I can try to comment the question
about the transfert of technology between competition and street only
related with engines and power (not safety).
Since the 1980's most of new technologies are based on strong scientific
knowledge and system modeling.
Now fuel economy is both in the racing and the road areas and combustion is
optimised with scientific computer modeling and this is true for racing and
for road engines. This is my field of expertise and I participated with
such tools to DI diesel combustion chamber as well to Formula 1 combustion
Until recently racing power was increased by increasing RPM while road
power is increased by high charging (BMEP) with turbo. Le Mans winners have
adopted diesel from the road, and from trucks.
Energy recovery devices started with the Toyota Prius before being applied
to the race.
The fundamentals of physics and chemistry are the same for both race and
road.To day engine designers use scientific knowledge for competition and
for road. They dont need race "GURU" but of course return from
experiments from track and from road are of high value

Sustainable Racing - Round Table CHENGDU - Michelin Challenge Bibendum in
Michelin Challenge Bibendum* - View Anthony Le Bleis's reference to you
It is an interesting round table topics indeed. Anthony Le Bleis
I like to share two cases that F1 applies into health care, if it is not "off the track".
1) highly efficient team performance and process management apply into Emergency Room and Operation Room.
"In Formula One motor racing, the pit stop team completes the complex task of changing tires and fueling the car in about seven seconds. The doctors saw this as analogous to the team effort of surgeons, anesthetist, and ICU staff to transfer the patient, equipment, and information safely and quickly from operating room to ICU."
2) highly sophisticated data monitoring applies into patients' care. (McLaren with Birmingham Children's Hospital)
"...telemetrics that assess a car's performance on the track are now being used to monitor Damian Singh as he recovers from a cardiac arrest in the intensive care ward of Birmingham Children's Hospital (BCH). It is the first time such a system has been adapted for use on humans."
Hello Sandra, your comment is not off the track, having the ability to do "industry swap" is very important when it comes to innovation. (see the "blue ocean strategies" as well on this topic).
I like your example with Mc Laren, it gives me an idea to post on Big Data analysis in the automotive industry, which I will do later. In the meantime, see this video:
Great answer and really today healthcare has become the most important priority for any being hence,intensive caring of patients and solutions are necessary.This can be achieved only through collaboration.After all we striving towards a common goal -to nurture our environment and fresh air breathe.
I would like to share the example of the Porsche 919 Hybrid, a mechanical and technological showcase developed for Le Mans.
Today, Porsche is the carmarker which offers the most number of different plug-in hybrid models: the Panamera S-E Hybrid, the Cayenne S-E Hybrid and the Porsche 918 spyder.
I think that Motorsports can definitely improve the mobility of tomorrow on technical and mechanical aspects but also on marketing aspect! Carmakers show to people that this technology works and they can even win races with it!

I learn a lot reading you !
I would like to raise another view in fact that sustainable racing can improve the mobility of tomorrow :
As you said, sustainable racing such as Formula E improves technologies, but it also allows people to familiarize with all those sustainable technologies. We need to convince people to use hybrid or electric vehicles, so what's better way to raise awareness than sustainable racing ?
I would like to give the example of Formula E and Julia Palle's testimony :
The round table on sustainable racing will take place this week at the Michelin Challenge Bibendum! Do you have any others comments/inputs to add? Your questions/comments will be take in account during the round table!
1. Motorcycle propel the technology innovation, speed up the mobility progress
2. high speed, high performance of energy, and security protect aspect
3. To have a sensitive sensor between two cars for avoiding traffic accident
Thank you for your feedbacks!
Great round table with Alejandro Agag, Pierre Fillon and Dr Wolfgang Ullrich

Yeah i too agree with the fact that motorsport is the future for tomorrow's mobility coz we need too develop SMART(specific,measurable,attitude,realistic,time-bound) technology. We believe that by utilising motorsport and the organic, strong relationship it has with automotive endeavours, we are able to make a step towards rewriting sustainable mobility as we know it. With electric power and reusable energy currently at the forefront of development for many established automotive manufactures, and with a higher international awareness, the time to support sustainable mobility is now.
I absolutely agree with you ASHISH AGRAWAL Motorsport is a great techno laboratory that will advance research and security in the coming years and help us to make the transition to a more efficient mobility. As you said, the time to support sustainable mobility is now!
Here an other example of the role of motorsport is sustainable mobility. The Acciona 100% EcoPowered, a 100% electric car will be present to the Paris - Dakar 2015. With 300 km range, the Acciona will have to change its batteries every 250 km.
A step forward to the generalization of 100% electric vehicles in our streets...
Mister Pierre Fillon said that he hopes that a 100% electric car will race Le Mans, but it is not for today... A first step could be the Nissan ZEOD RC ( ZEOD for zero emission on demand) who can complete a lap on electric power and hit a target speed of 300 kilometers per hour!
Things didn't go so well at Le Mans 2014. The problem for the prototype – which was powered by a 1.5-liter gas ending putting out 400 horsepower and a pair of 110-kW electric motors – was that something broke in the transmission after just 23 minutes and five laps.
Nissan will be back at Le Mans next year, it will be competing in the premier LMP1 category with its new GT-R LM NISMO hybrid prototype.
