Felipe Massa, an ex-Formula 1 pilot, said, that he would like to see karting in the list of Olympic sports.  After  the end of his career, Massa became the President of the international Commission of the karting (FIA).

– At the moment we have a couple of good ideas.  The main is that  we want to make an electric karting an Olympic sports. We want to see it at the Olympic Games 2024 in Paris. Electric karting is very promising branch right now, it develops very active. Of course, there are a lot of things that still have to be improved, such as battery weight. It is really importat, especially in the case of  an accident. But actually I don’t  think that it will take a long time to find a solution of this problem, because, as I already said, technological progress never stands still – quoted Massa the website Motorsport.com.
