Why cynic Berger changed his mind over green tech in racing
By:

DTM boss Gerhard Berger was a detractor of Formula E and held a reluctance for his series to embrace greener engine technologies. However, this cynic's tune has had to change to ensure DTM's existence as the motorsport world moves forward

Few things seem to hit the same note of contempt with certain motorsport fans than the mention of alternative power - whether that's electric, hybrid or hydrogen.

Some believe that alternative power is symptomatic of motorsport's increasingly exorbitant cost, and nothing more than a complicated marketing gimmick. Others use it to point at the disparity between Formula 1's haves and have-nots, suggesting that it is the antithesis of competition. You only need to look at how Formula E still receives pointed barbs from both within and outside the motorsport sphere, despite having become an established series - and is now into its sixth season.
