Synthetic fuels will be introduced in line with the next iteration of hybrid engines, which will debut later that year.

F1 hopes that this fuel will be used in standard internal combustion engines and applied throughout the automotive industry.

According to the BBC, only 1% of cars in the world were hybrid or electric in 2020, and F1 wants to increase that number in the future.

It has also taken several other steps towards its zero-carbon commitment, including remote broadcasting operations to reduce freight traffic.

Last year’s British Grand Prix was the first carbon-neutral broadcast and F1 plans to do the same again at Silverstone this week.

F1 has also redesigned its cargo containers to use more efficient aircraft to transport them around the world.
