Tough, isn't it? F1 needs to be seen to be environmentally conscious to continue to get big ticket corporate sponsorship, but it can't be at the detriment to the racing. It's also hoped that developing 'greener' race cars will lead to greener performance road cars. But it's a drop in the ocean compared to the resources used in running a team! Fuel for cargo planes, team trucks, the thousands of tyres thrown away, the energy required to power a wind tunnel etc etc... Doesn't really matter if the car does 50mpg or 5mpg, the carbon footprint of the race cars themselves is nothing compared to the operation as a whole.
