    I argued in this post:

    Technical - The Lotus, The Comet and the myth of “Trickle Down” Technology

    F1 has followed motoring trends throughout its history and has very rarely set trends. I believe the cars really should push what is technically possible but, this won't happen for 3 reasons.

    1) It would cost too much
    2) The tracks couldn't handle faster cars
    3) It would require much more freedom of regulation.

    Trickle down from F1 in the motoring realm is mostly marketing, e.g. powered by f1.

    Technical trickle down falls mostly outside, medical sensors being a key that i can think of, although I'm not sure regarding battery and hybrid tech.

    Regulation change would be necessary to allow innovation which could trickle down. Failing that, try the homologation route.
