Four-time Formula 1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel will be using 100% fossil-free fuel throughout the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed as he drives his stunning personal collection of F1 cars up the world famous hill over the weekend of July 13-16. Using P1 Fuel in his ex-Nigel Mansell Williams Renault that won the title in 1992 and the sublime McLaren Ford that Ayrton Senna took to victory at the 1993 Monaco Grand Prix, Vettel will be showcasing the practicality of P1’s fossil-free fuel that can power such important racing cars without any modification to their complex 3.5 litre V10 and V8 engines.
Vettel, the third ever most successful F1 driver, is a pioneer of ‘Race without a Trace’ in reducing CO2 emissions while behind the wheel of his cars for a future with a sustainable solution to mobility. Goodwood is also striving forward with zero emissions as 20% of the total entry at the Festival of Speed will be running on alternative fuels whether electric, hydrogen or synthetic fuel.
There will be a chance to hear directly from Sebastian Vettel at Goodwood on Sunday morning when journalists can hear all about his cars, what retirement is like after 16 years of F1 racing and how passionate the German is about pushing forward to find an alternative solution to fossil fuels.
P1 Fuels is the global fossil-free fuel leader in both quality and sustainability. Its aim is to provide a replacement for fossil fuels decarbonise the 1.6 billion combustion engine road cars.
A direct replacement for fossil fuels used in cars and trucks with combustion engines, P1 Fuels is working closely with the world’s leading automotive OEMs, and engine developers, as the global automotive industry moves towards a future of sustainability.
Martin Popilka, the CEO of P1 Fuels said, “Today is a proud day for P1 Fuels and the sustainable mobility community. Sebastian Vettel represents “Race without a Trace” with his Williams and McLaren F1 cars at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It’s a significant milestone showing the versatility of our fuels in both new and old engines without any modifications. With the automotive world’s attention on this event, powering Sebastian’s cars further demonstrates the flexibility to cover all cars with ICE engines with our fuels.”
Vettel will be at Goodwood on Saturday and Sunday 15th and 16th July during the 30th anniversary of what is arguably the World’s Motor Show with heroes and world champions of two and four wheels alongside premiers of new models, technology and scientific know how. Following his F1 career from 2007 to 2022, Vettel won the first Grand Prix for a Red Bull team (Monza 2008, Toro Rosso) and then their first World Championship (Red Bull Racing) in 2010 before a magnificent run of four titles on the bounce. Ferrari and Aston Martin followed before he stood down last December after 16 glittering years in F1 taking 53 Grands Prix wins, a number only bettered by Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton.
The German has a true sense of what the current environmental effect is of mobility and what needs, and can be done, to ensure future generations on the planet having talked about it with brevity on BBC Question Time last year and being outspoken about the environment in many situations where others towed a more muted line.
