I hate grain

And my Sony A7R IV is a grainy mess.

I think even 320 ISO on it is unacceptable, but I'm quite happy with 100 ISO.
However since I've recently added 100-400 f5 - 6.3 for motorsport, I have issues keeping my ISO at 100.
At f6.3 I *need* to bump it to 640 or so if I want to freeze cars moving towards me.
The alternatives are 70-200 f2.8 (maybe with the 1.4x converter) or 100-400 which is only a bit lighter. But those are 2 times more expensive lenses than what I have now. Not including the converter.
The other alternatives (400 f2.8) are way out of my budget.

Besides the medium format cameras, what are my alternatives?
