Instead, staff will have to use recycled and recyclable bottles that can be refilled in the additional water filling stations that will be set up around the circuits, paddocks, offices and garages.

F1 has also made its paddock passes more sustainable this year. They are now made from recycled plastic. An estimated 143,275 plastic bottles were recycled to make the 2021 annual passes.

Sebastian Vettel is one of the Formula 1 stars who have been pushing for the sport to cut down on plastic use, as Motorsport reports.
