A part of you wonders whether the sport you love is harming the environment, though, leaving you asking, “What is the carbon footprint of Formula 1?”

You’re not the only one with these concerns. Formula 1 in 2019 launched a plan to achieve net-zero emissions by 2030. This means the organization is striving to make it to where the carbon dioxide emitted into the air equals the amount removed from the atmosphere, leading to zero net carbon emitted, or a neutral carbon footprint.

Let’s explore Formula 1’s sustainability strategy and what the F1 2030 net zero goal means for drivers — and you.

2023's Las Vegas F1 Track and International Track Changes

For 2023, Formula 1 returns to Las Vegas but this time to a brand new F1 track! Cars will be hurling down the famous Las Vegas Strip well in excess of 200 mph in Formula 1’s bid to create the “Monza of America” Grand Prix. With this F1 track in 2023, Las Vegas will be the third venue in the United States in a single season (with Miami and Austin being the other two) and signifies how important of a locale the United States is to the growing popularity of Formula 1.

Audi to Enter Formula 1

In case you missed it, Audi has announced they will be joining the Formula 1 grid beginning with the 2026 season, both as a team and as an engine manufacturer. Unfortunately, it won’t mean that a new team will be added; rather, Audi and the Sauber team are now partners. (Sauber is currently in an agreement with Alfa Romeo; however, that comes to its conclusion at the end of the 2023 season.)

Fernando Alonso Goes to Aston Martin

Fernando Alonso can be rather polarizing. Depending upon who you ask, he’s either the greatest driver on the grid who deserves more championships, or he’s a toxic individual and creates chaos on teams.

Something I want to tackle here, however, is whether teams are better off once he leaves. This is a theory that’s been going around for a while now, and it touches on various parts of Alonso’s characteristics. This is especially important to consider as Fernando Alonso goes to Aston Martin in 2023. What I’ll do is look at each time Alonso left a team and how they did the following season, plus add some colorful commentary to each situation.
