F1 sustainability heading in illogical direction says Newey

Adrian Newey has questioned the narrative surrounding the future of Formula 1 and motoring in general. As for the Formula 1 cars, the hybrid ‘power unit’ technology is extraordinarily efficient but Newey says the hefty weight of the cars offsets a lot of that. “No one seems to be talking about the amount of energy used to keep the car moving,” he said. “Some changes in Formula 1 are also the result of lobbying,” Newey added. “I think we need smaller, lighter and more energy efficient cars. “Our cars have become bigger and heavier and are not particularly aerodynamically efficient because they have a lot of drag. “It seems that the technical rules of Formula 1 don’t acknowledge that, because of course the big car manufacturers don’t want that.
