British Formula 1 team McLaren could get involved in the FIA's new electric-only open wheeler series Formula E.

The series, featuring single seaters powered only by electric motors, will debut in 2014 and race in the centre of cities on street circuits.

"Who knows, we might pop up in it," Martin Whitmarsh, boss of the famous Formula 1 team McLaren, told Reuters.

"I think it's a good initiative and we'd be delighted in whatever form to be involved with it."

Asked if that means there will be an electric McLaren team on the Formula E grid, Whitmarsh confirmed: "At some point, yes. But that's not at the moment."
