...but improvements needed
I’ve just been to the French GP and, having read your interview with the French drivers, decided to investigate the port of Cassis on the Monday, as recommended by Romain Grosjean. Please pass on my thanks to him, it’s a lovely place – didn’t see any sign of him though!
As for the GP, it’s great to see F1 back in France but the organisation left a lot to be desired. I met loads of people who were so fed up after the Friday that they didn’t bother using their tickets for the rest of the weekend! And those that did persevere said they won’t return.
The organisers need to visit Hungary and Austria to see how a good GP can be run, with relatively quick and easy access, a great selection and variety of local
cuisines with enough outlets to avoid Ricard’s queues. Most people gave up after the first day and brought their own food.
Also, with the downpour in FP3, there was absolutely nowhere to shelter. The only plus point was there were plenty of toilets!
