The news. (http://www.wired.com/cars/coolwheels/news/2007/11/formula_one)


Kinetic-energy recovery systems which make their F1 debut in 2009, are one area where F1 is already advancing green car technology(...) These systems use a flywheel in the transmission to capture the energy generated during braking and store it for use during acceleration.

Looks interesting...
