Brazil Promoter asked to tighten security.

1y ago


It's been a long time coming. Let's hope they actually do something about it now. Three reported robberies this year and Pirelli canceled their testing due to security concerns. Below are the statements from the FIA.

“The World Council was presented with the report on the security idents that occurred at this year’s Brazilian Grand Prix which was requested from the Commercial Rights Holder (CRH) by the FIA,” the FIA’s statement read.

“Following the report, the CRH recommended that the promoter, who is responsible for the security of the event, retains an independent security expert to evaluate and advise on security plans, implements a police reporting hub at the circuit and improves overall communication between the promoter security, police and F1 stakeholders.

“The World Council strongly urged the promoter to implement these recommendations and improve the situation ahead of next year’s event.

“The FIA will offer to participate in discussions with the local authorities and closely monitor the situation.”
