Eric Boullier: FOTA is still significant

Published

on

FOTA (Formula One Teams Association) vice-chairman Eric Boullier says that Teams Association is still important in Formula 1 and this will get better for F1 development and fans forum activities. Last season Ferrari and Red Bull left from FOTA

“I think the key thing is that even if some teams left officially the organisation, they are still committing on the main subjects which are the RRA, and the testing agreements,” Boullier told Autosport.

“Teams are still actively working together, and FOTA also is now about thinking of changing the way we want to operate, and the way we see it perceived in the paddock.

“If all the teams are not together, it is a different position in the paddock. But there is still some interest for me for all the teams to sit down together and to participate in F1 development and this kind of [fans’] forum is a good example.”

“It means the basis of FOTA is still remaining,” he said. “It has changed, it will change again, but I think the F1 teams should at least, for the fans, be together.”

“For me it is good to have fans which actually can ask you direct questions, and it is good to be in contact directly with the fans,” he said. “I think we should do this. I am clearly in favour of this contact with the fans of F1 and it is good to see them happy, to meet different people and we are happy to be available for them to answer their questions.”
