Paul - Yes, of course in reality the environmental positive from the switch from V8s to smaller turbo'd V6s will be negligible in the grander scheme of things. The point is more about the manufacturers being able to put their money into something more relevant to the changing times, as well as say, setting an example, or showing the world what can be done with a smaller turbo'd engine. Of course out in the real world, your road car probably doesn't rev to 15k either. But improving the carbon footprint in transport to the circuits and whatnot is not something that's in the spotlight for the world to see. 22 or so cars screaming around a track is what people see in F1.
