Formula One goes green in Japan

Formula One goes green in Japan
All teams competing at this weekend's Japanese Formula One Grand Prix will run on green-grooved tyres as part of an environmental initiative by the sport.

The International Automobile Federation (FIA) recently introduced the Make Cars Green campaign into global motor sport.

Launched in June, this involves a variety of targets for vehicle efficiency, alongside a range of new technical initiatives to areas such as engines and tyres.

Max Mosley, FIA president, pointed out to Reuters that these new rules and increased awareness could "change the face of motor sport and place it at the very heart of environmental developments in the automotive sector".

"The FIA is determined to ensure future investment in motor sport will also help drive the development of technologies that will benefit the public at large," he added.

Ross Brawn, Honda team boss, told the news agency: "Formula One should certainly be looking to introduce further environmentally-focused regulations in future."

"To develop hybrid and heat recovery technologies which can then be used on road cars demonstrates F1 can play an important role in developing energy efficient and environmentally friendly technologies," added Mr Brawn.
