Octagon Motorsports CEO Bain resigns
Traffic was not a problem, but Bernie Ecclestone still managed to find problems with the signs inside the circuit. Ecclestone arrived by helicopter, but the recent work done around the circuit left his chauffeur lost and Bernie quite critical. He remarked that the event was a "county fair masquerading as a world event", and said despite the improvements made to the roads, the event's organization was worse than ever.
Bain expressed frustration with Ecclestone's comments, before announcing his resignation.
