Ecclestone Concerned By Electric Cars

Bernie Ecclestone has expressed concerns over the newly published 2014 technical regulations (see separate story here)

It has been proposed that as well as KERS playing a larger role and being available for a longer period per lap, cars would be powered only by an electric motor when in the pitlane.

Ecclestone, however, believes that this could be dangerous: "people could be killed because they won't hear the cars coming."

This seems a slightly extreme view. Surely no one would cross the pitlane without looking - regardless of how much noise the cars made?
