The great thing about electric power is that's it all available the moment you want it. So in theory, an electric Formula One car should outperform everything out there today, assuming the aerodynamics, handling, etc. were up to snuff.
I have heard that electrics will beat a comparable IC engine off the line as it develops full torque immediately and doesn't have to climb up the RPM curve.** But outperforming across the full range?* Really?* Or speculation?
