All pub­lic­ity is good pub­lic­ity

F1 Racing - - INBOX -

While we all know that Fer­nando Alonso’s de­ci­sion to tackle the Indy 500 has come about as a re­sult of McLaren’s re­cent poor per­for­mances, the sim­ple truth is that the pub­lic­ity gen­er­ated by this story has been enor­mous.

Lib­erty Me­dia now need to cap­i­talise on this, and make sure that Bernie’s de­ci­sion to, more of­ten than not, sched­ule a race on the same weekend as the Le Mans 24 Hours is never re­peated.

There would then be the op­por­tu­nity to gen­er­ate even more pos­i­tive vibes by en­cour­ag­ing as many F1 driv­ers as pos­si­ble to take part in Le Mans, as Nico Hülken­berg did in 2015, and to prove, once and for all, that F1 driv­ers are the best in the world. Mark Ap­pleby By email
