FIA President Jean Todt has added the Belgian Grand Prix farce to the list for the next F1 Commission meeting, which will meet on October 5th.
FIA President Jean Todt has now stepped up to the plate. He promised that the federation would look carefully at the lessons to be learned from this farce.
“The Belgian Grand Prix this year was an extraordinary challenge for Formula 1 ,” writes Todt on his Twitter account. The predicted weather windows never appeared throughout the day and, although a small window did show up at the end of the day, when we tried to start the race, conditions again quickly worsened.”
“In fact, due to the lack of visibility caused by the splashing water behind the cars, we could not run the entire race in a sufficiently safe way for the pilots, the marshals and our courageous spectators who waited several hours in the rain, which I’m so sorry for.”
“The FIA, F1 and the teams will carefully review the regulations to see what can be learned and improved in the future. What we find, including the problem of the distribution of points, will be added to the list of the next F1 Commission meeting on October 5th.”
