Formula 1 announced that it will transition to carbon-neutral racing by the year 2030. The announcement was made by the IFA, which is the sports governing body. The carbon-neutral racing pledge will extend not only the vehicles on the race track but also to operations surrounding the sport. However, Formula 1 will still use combustion engines, but the engines will be net neutral. This is possible through the use of synthetic fuels like methane.
Formula 1 is constantly on the cutting edge of automotive developments, as technologies are developed for race cars and then later adopted by the industry. This gives Formula 1 a unique opportunity to accelerate the development of eco-friendly vehicles.
