As said, what use is a 2025 hybrid formula gonna be? Any further lessons learned would hit the public road 2030 at the earliest. At that point we will be firmly in the electric era and hybrid will just be as irrelevant as a conventional combustion vehicle, just a multitude more expensive and heavier.

Synthetic fuels or battery is basically the same footprint. Both would use green electricity to store the energy, both are more or less co2 neutral (in case of synthetic fuel you first collect the co2 from the atmosphere to then use green electricity to create the fuel, so in the end more or less co2 neutral).

On the subject of sound, I don't think it is a good idea to go back to the noise levels of previous atmospheric F1 engines. Some sound damping would be in order (still vastly better sounding than the current ones).
