Former BRDC president Damon Hill says about the London Grand Prix’s positive and negative things.
Hill reckons more positive aspects and also he added logistical problem will affect London GP, street race could more difficult than Olympics, because is Olympics in a location.
Last Thursday a suggestion for a London GP was presented by banker Santander and McLaren’s F1 drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. F1 street race planned way was also revealed and would see drivers race past Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square.
“Anywhere there’s population density it increases the possibility of getting a full house and the added attractions of being in a major metropolis like London means that a lot of the facilities like hotels and transport are already in place,” Hill told Sky Sports News.
“A million people came out to see the Queen go up the river in a boat, so the potential for a big crowd is there.
“The logistical problem with having parts of London put on hold to use some of the actual streets for races could be more difficult than say putting on the Olympics because the Olympics is in a location which is not central. So we’ll see.”
