Could Hydrogen power a Formula 1 car? F1 might have hedged its bets with hybrid powertrains, but it is still aiming for a greener way to power its race cars in the future. In comes hydrogen power, which uses an entirely sustainable method of generating electricity to propel a racecar. Both Extreme E and the Mission H24 concept car are planning to use hydrogen to fuel themselves to victory, so Jake Boxall-Legge takes a look at how hydrogen power works, it's pros and cons and whether hydrogen power could be the future fuel for Formula 1 cars.
