Or to be more precise, the only thing slowing down motorsport is the safety of the drivers.
Meanwhile driver error is a large margin, one that cannot be controlled by designers or engineers. It is the split second decision making of the person with the steering wheel in their hand that dictates race success or catastrophic failure.

What if we could put the control into the hands of the designers and the engineers.
Could we go faster?
What would we teach the drivers?
Can we fully automate a FormulaE car?
