F2 and F3 to debut sustainable fuels in 2023

Technical innovation will debut in F1 in 2026.

Sustainable fuels are set to debut in Formula Two and Formula Three this season ahead of their planned introduction in Formula One in 2026.

Confirmed:

  • 55 per cent mix to be used in 2023, with the concentration being gradually increased
  • Rollout planned for Formula One in 2026
  • 100 per cent sustainable fuels planned in for junior series for 2027, one year after Formula One

Context: Such close collaboration on the innovation with Saudi Arabian oil giant Aramco – one of the biggest greenhouse gas emitters in history – creates questions around the sustainability of the new fuels.

Comment: Stefano Domenicali, president and chief executive of Formula One, said: “A lot of research and dedication has gone into the creation of the Advanced Sustainable Fuels that the F2 and F3 cars will be using this year, and we’re delighted to see it now in action on the racetrack. The role of the F2 and F3 Championships has never been more important, as they continue to nurture the next generation of driver talent and inspire game-changing innovation.”

Coming next: The rollout of sustainable fuels are part of Formula One's plan of achieving net zero emissions by 2030.
