Driverless F1? Is that going to draw an audience?

Saw this today on Autoweek:

I can't imagine looking forward to watching a pro auto race where there are no human drivers. I just can't. But it certainly sounds like it might become a reality here pretty soon. Wonder how many people will be interested in watching the 24 Hours of Le Mans/Daytona or Monaco, or V8 Supercars, all running RC cars. Maybe it'll be fun to watch. :idontknow:

I do like watching BattleBots from tyme to tyme but they're trying demolish each other. And as xr7 wrote above, at that point I just as much watch Demo Derby. Take the driver out of the car and it's just not the same sport and shouldn't be advertised in the same vain.

Im surprised how many young people i talk to that prefer to watch someone else play a video game on twitch over playing the video game themselves.
I don't understand this. I know it's popular, but I don't get it. I guess it's like watching pro athletes and trying to learn from them, but lame.

This is the comedy gold I come here for!

This whole thing is dumb, but I'm becoming a dinosaur just because I can remember (vaguely) a time before all this digital craziness and I just can't relate to whatever is going on in Chinese spyware social media land.
