Formula One showed plans of a new concept car which we could see on the grid as soon as 2021.
During the event, Piquet Jr said: “An interesting thing, something came out about the future of a Formula One car.
“I thought it looked so much like a Formula E car, it seemed like they copied the design.”
He added: “Definitely it shows we are now being the series to look at.”
Speaking to SunSport, the 33-year-old added: “I don’t think they looked at us (Formula E).
“When they designed this car they tried to look aggressive.”
“It’s going to look like this (Formula E’s Gen2 car), the lines, the halo, the wing – it still looks very neat the Formula One car.”
The new Formula E season kicks off in December, in Saudi Arabia as the series is set for its fifth championship.
