The premier car racing league Formula 1 (F1) is coming to a close for the season. Formula 1 has a big challenge for next year. The Formula 1 president says that the central message he has for next year is better fuel mileage.

Formula 1 cars currently get 3-4 miles per gallon. Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent by teams just to get a few more RPMs out of the engine. Formula 1 is a league of racers where there is no budget. It will be fascinating to see the best engine designers struggle to design Formula 1 engines to be more fuel-efficient and still remain competitive. Imagine running a fuel measurement circuit at insane speeds and then slamming on the brakes!
