Formula 1 to use engines powered by sustainable fuels by 2026

Formula 1 plans to introduce engines powered by sustainable fuels by 2026 as part of a wider environmental plan over the coming years. “We also believe there is not a single solution to the engine technologies of the future but a sustainably fuel hybrid engine will be a significant moment for the sport and the automotive sector.”. Sustainable fuels are one way of reducing carbon emissions from road vehicles while other technologies are developed. F1 already has in force a requirement for engines to use fuels in 2021 that have a 10% sustainable content. One option being explored to reach 100% sustainability is the use of synthetic fuels, which capture carbon from the atmosphere in their manufacture and are therefore carbon-neutral.
