Few things seem to hit the same note of contempt with certain motorsport fans than the mention of alternative power - whether that's electric, hybrid or hydrogen.
Some believe that alternative power is symptomatic of motorsport's increasingly exorbitant cost, and nothing more than a complicated marketing gimmick. Others use it to point at the disparity between Formula 1's haves and have-nots, suggesting that it is the antithesis of competition.
