So if the density of gasoline is 0.7l/kg and Mr Lewis burns 100kg per Sunday (not counting FPs and Qualy), then he's burning about 140L. Every liter burned releases ~2.29kg of CO2, that means Mr Lewis releases 320kg of CO2 every Sunday among other gases like CO, NOx, SO2, benzenes and what not. He can cut the shit and travel on a commercial plane from now on and sell his supercars and buy a Prius.
BTW, if we don't eat the cows their fart will kill our planet so that's why I'm having a big ass serving of smoked Brisket with beef ribs tonight (jk).

I dont think he is flying commercial. From the photo's I've seen posted by drivers on Twitter/Instagram, it appears most of them (if not all) travel by private jet (I'm assuming the are charted flights). To make it more economical they seem to travel together.

That being said, I cant imagine Lewis has take such a large step down from his mode of travel. He also seems like a very busy guy so traveling on chartered flights would be inconvenient. Maybe Mercedes loans/rents him a jet?

EDIT: Here are two of the recent photos that Ive seen posted that led me to that conclusion.

One wonders how much of this direction is being guided by his life coach...or is his life coach on vacation and this is Lewis on his own.
Then there's this possibility: Jean Eric Vergne: "Eco-friendly Lewis Hamilton should join Formula E"

Lewis has his own jet for many years now.. it was visible near hangar area in Paul Ricard on helicams.. i guess it was the same one.. the darkish red one.. and sure Merc' provides more any time he needs it.. and as far as i know he sold it now.. after one of the pilots pooped in his toilet..
