Anyone have any links to information on how "wasteful" F1 is? Specifically, there is a bozo here at work who told me that each set of F1 tires/tyres takes two barrels of oil to make. I find this hard to believe. I don't like wasting resources either, but I attempted to explain some of the upsides of racing and related research. Anywho, anybody got some real info on this type of thing? Tires, fuel, the cars themselves? I have a feeling most racing stats are pulled from NASCAR, which I don't care about. I would just like to provide answers to this semi-troll.
