We Won’t Rush F1 Fans Back To Circuits: Ross Brawn Interview
On the show today, an exclusive conversation with Ross Brawn. Motorsport Network President James Allen spoke to Ross about the plan to go racing again in 2020. There are currently 69 signatures on the FIA F1 world champion’s trophy and whoever adds the 70th at the end of this year will have won in a truly exceptional season. Formula 1 restarts soon and in this latest interview in the #ThinkingForward series, James interviewed Ross at the FIA eConference - they spoke about the challenges of organising the first eight races, the rise of esports during the lockdown, and the complications of filling in the remaining gaps on the calendar with long haul races. Brawn also voiced the hope that this new spirit of collaboration between FIA, F1 and the teams as a result of the Coronavirus crisis, that brought about a remarkable set of rule changes and a budget cap, will continue into the future.
