In pictures: Emerging fuels do battle on the track in Asia

Travelling 1,572km on a litre of ethanol, Team Virgin failed to match its 2014 performance on gas, but still more than tripled the distance of the closest competitor. The combination of light carbon fiber bodywork, an innovative drivetrain system and a feedback system that helps the driver know when to reduce fuel usage while still maintaining speed, enabled the team to take the overall victory.
