Motor racing and the environment. It's an issue that has been raised many times in recent years as the clouds of environmental consciousness have gathered over a sport that seems to be, in terms of its ideology, at odds with the needs of the 'greens'.
It is not an issue that is being ignored, however. AUTOSPORT engaged the opinions of two industry experts; Andrew Davis of the Environmental Transport Association and Williams F1's technical director Sam Michael, to find out how best to improve the sport's green credentials.
