Max Mosley says he’s not very keen on using Biofuels in F1. With Richard Branson’s recent endorsement of Brawn GP it is no wonder the Biofuel king is looking for a deal in F1 to sell his plan. Mr. Mosly feels different toward the Biofuels however:
“We’re obviously just starting with serious efforts on the environment in Formula 1,” said Mosley. “The danger is people get carried away with new ideas for environmentally friendly motorsport, the most obvious one being biofuel.
“We now all understand the first generation biofuels are actually a negative in that what you’re effectively doing is taking fuel away from people. The source of the first generation biofuels is the same as food and, when you’ve got one billion people in the world who don’t have enough to eat, it’s really not a good thing to do.
“Second generation biofuels perhaps, but the approach we have taken in Formula 1, and we intend to take in the future in the WRC, is to try to encourage efficient use of energy rather than to dictate which source of energy it should be.”
Okay, wait a minute:
“The danger is people get carried away with new ideas for environmentally friendly motorsport”? That’s a projectionist statement if I have ever heard one. Talk about carried away.
Here’s a thought, how about Diesel Max?
