If you are attending next week’s Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal, here’s your chance to meet face to face with leading figures from the sport; team principals, engineers and drivers at the FOTA Fans Forum in Montreal on Thursday June 9th at 6pm at the Omni Mont-Royal Hotel, 1050 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal.
The FOTA Fans Forum, launched last summer at a pioneer event in London, is a unique opportunity for the fans and the sport to come together and exchange ideas. In no other sport do the competitors engage with the fans in this direct way.
Fans will have the opportunity to ask questions and to offer their points of view on all the key talking points in the sport at the moment – such as the overtaking, DRS wing, Pirelli tyres, F1 in North America, the internet – the floor is yours, you set the agenda. I will be the moderator.
The panel discussion for Montreal is split into three sessions, each of which will last 30 minutes.
