It's car racing in general that's the problem but it's small enough to be less significant than many other sports. It's more to do with the image of waste that it portrays to the world.

That's the factor that will lead to it's downfall. Probably already is, compared to what it was!

Formula 1 is extremely popular world-wide.  It gets Super Bowl-like TV audience worldwide every week or two for each race. 

471 million viewers on TV in 2019.

F1 Will change with the times....   itís technology has always trickled down to road cars, at least somewhat.  It will eventually change to EV probably....   or perhaps another renewable fuel that still makes a lot of noise through an ICE.  Auto racing will always be around, even if folks like yourself donít care for it.
