As part of the sustainability trial, one of Mercedes’ team trucks was put to the test and powered with Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO100) fuel at the Hungarian GP. Its destination was the Barckley headquarters, UK. After this, more trucks used biofuel to travel from Spa to Zandvoort, then from Zandvoort to Monza. And as per the analysis, the use of Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil not only decreased the CO2 emission but also helped in reducing freight impact on local air quality.

As per the team, the trial results are just the start, as they have bigger aims to achieve in the coming years. They have set commitments to work on sustainability.
