Electric racing not the only solution
The FIA is making great strides to reduce emissions in various racing classes. In 2014, it launched Formula E, the first all-electric racing class. Meanwhile, Extreme E has been added and the World Rallycross Championship will become electric in 2022.
"We were pioneers with the hybrid power source in Formula 1 and we have Formula E," Todt is quoted by Motorsport.com. However, electrification is not the only option according to Todt.
Hydrogen engines the future?
Currently, the FIA is looking at the possibilities with hydrogen engines, although it does not seem that this will be used in Formula 1 in 2025 yet. "It is a very interesting development of the technology," says Todt. The Frenchman says an announcement will follow soon when it comes to hydrogen.
