total fuel used in a formula 1 season, by all teams, is less than that of one trans Atlantic 747 flight..

You forgot to count all the fuel F1 uses flying 747's around the world


The same could be said for any spectator sport.

Ok, fair enough...I thought that if we were going to be comparing fuel use, therefore carbon emissions, it would be fairer to compare sports based on total carbon emissions-hence people travelling to watch whatever it is as well, in which case I'd expect the emissions to be similar for most major events (rugby world cups, concerts, etc). In any case, it's not my favourite topic as (I think we've just shown) it's difficult to define, and I don't really know what reasonable solutions exist-do we in the most extreme case stop doing anything that uses fuel? Or do we stop all non-essential uses of fuel-then, who decides what is essential?

:hmmm: F1 = non essential.

Like all sport, and art for that matter. Should we get rid of all of that too?

Plus if you look at the horsepowers that they are extracting from each litre of fuel (specific consumption) there's nothing else like it (MotoGP maybe, but then it's just F1 with a more economical number of wheels) Toyota Pious' included.

Also the flow on effect from this type of top level motorsports is real, even though it might take some time. DSG gearboxes, carbon-ceramic brakes and it's not too hard to see that a KERS type device could be real and available in road cars in the short(ish) timeframe.

:eh: You know I don't even attempt to argue with your LACK of logic, but how about we just get rid of F1 for now.
