In deep concern for formula 1 and its entire full-throttle world, the head of the automotive world association calls for a radical rethink.
"What we need is a complete rethink of motorsport". "We could talk about a new deal, like the one america had after the world economic crisis," fia president jean todt was quoted as saying in the association’s youngest magazine. Michael schumacher’s former ferrari team boss says the corona standstill also threatens the future of his premium formula 1 product. At the same time, however, the crisis could also be an opportunity for radical reforms in the racing series.
This was a "painful" process, says formula 1 sports boss ross brawn. "But i think we’ll come out of this stronger if we can get through it," adds the 65-year-old nicknamed the "mastermind". Formula 1 is to become more cost-efficient, fairer and more efficient. Closer to the fan, more exciting and supposedly even more climate-friendly. All of this is what liberty media wanted to do before the covid 19 pandemic, but now the need for rapid change is much more severe.
