Formula One Must Go Green

PJ1216 writes "The Federation Internationale de l'Automobile has announced a ban on further investment into F1 engines and must look into more environmentally friendly technology. From the article, "The biggest teams — Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Honda and Toyota among them — each spend $200 million or more a year on fossil-fuel technology with little real-world application. But now the sport's ruling body has said, "Enough," and banned further investment in F1 engines. Teams must now focus on hybrid systems and other eco-friendly means of producing power."
Looks like the race needs more green than just a flag. The upshot of this is that this will spur eco-friendly technology that can make its way onto our streets and into our cars."
