F1 powerplants are the most efficient ICE systems in existence, over 50% thermal efficiency. If you drive a car, it is probably less than 30% efficient. F1's plan is to transition to synthetic fuels derived from recaptured CO2 combined with hydrogen.

As far as other emissions are concerned, they are probably less for 22 events a year than they are for hockey, basketball or baseball leagues playing over 80 games a year.

PS. There are 31 NHL teams that play 80 regular season games a year. That's 1240 games a year that involved an away team travelling to each one of them.

Plus playoffs.

You're just trying to dodge the issue. That's not something I'm going to spend time debated with you because I see it wouldn't be worth the effort.
