Formula One has been a harbinger of things to come in the automotive world. Many of the features we find on cars today were first honed on the race track before filtering down to the street. But even when they're driving the future today, F1 teams are still looking ahead at innovations to come. French manufacturer Renault released their concept of what the sport might look like 10 years from now with the RS 2027 Vision concept car. LED position and lap displays, a fully-enclosed cockpit, and clear body panels that allow spectators to see the mechanicals underneath the bodywork are just a few of the ideas Renault sees finding their way into the F1 car of the future.
