The overwhelming echo to your post reminds me of a cartoon of Gary Larson.

The second dog from the right says: "Yesterday I learned I'm suffering from intestinal worms." Summarized: Human racers don't like to be replaced by technical systems. Alter

Maybe intestinal worms is the wrong metaphor? .
Reminds me more of rules and regulations.
So guess it could be appropriate.
New rule: no drivers.
Driverless cars are boring.
The technical novelty is interesting.
Don't think racing them qualifies as sport.
When watching an F1 race my enthusiasm is for the drivers not so much their cars.
It is a good show when back of the field manufacturers do well.
Glad for the team when it happens.
More glad for the driver tho.

It'll be interesting to see how quickly and how good they get.
When one beats e.g. Lewis Hamilton, that's when we should start getting worried..
Chess, Jeopardy, Go.. Driving is next?

Checking definition of sport find several as in pretty much all include humans doing something as participants, like when humans control their battle bots.
Not sure how much car manufacturers want to give up on selling driving experience.
