One of the most prominent icons in the history of Formula One racing is known as Gordon Murray. He is a 5-time Formula One champion and a car designer, has turned into making green cars and able to highlight the T27 model after designing the first model called T25. Gordon became the McLaren’s F1 Head Designer who created the gas powered T25 that was able to achieved almost 100mpg on a future rally called the Brighton to London. On the other hand, the new T27 has a new feature like the electric motor and it is totally green in its own way. 

Formula One racing has never been the same as it goes green next year. It is based on the stakeholder’s agreement to utilize a brand new type of engine for grand prix which is set on the year 2013. It is likely that the Formula One race cars will be officially transformed into eco-friendly next gen race cars in the near future. According to the F1 big green press announcement, there will be new rules set by FIA and it is certainly confirmed by the governing body. On the other hand, Ferrari and Mercedes was quite hesitant with the move considering that it will be an additional cost and saying that it was an unnecessary expense during the time when the Formula One is planning to lessen its cost. Although, the set of rules had already been agreed by the committee, the spokesman of Ferrari said that, “if it was not announced by the world council, he would be surprised.” This new development would be adding more cost grounds and he had a few concerns regarding this plan. However, he stated that if there is an agreement, we must work accordingly.
This “Green” engine grand prix car advocacy is said to be based on reflection towards the trend of the road car fuel efficiency and to make it more recognizable in the world of auto racing. Thus, it will augment the demands and supply of these types of engines for the coming years and for the next generation as well. Currently, Formula race cars are using the 2.4 liters V8s engine which will become a history very soon. The new type of “green” cars will be using a 1.6 liters with 4 cylinder turbo engines that have fuel control, and the so-called energy recovery systems. It is possible that the F1 organization will be switching to a green technology, as well as using cleaner fuels that will be beneficial in the auto racing industry for the years to come.
