Future races edgy as F1 teeters on the brink
The organisers of the French and British Grands Prix have both issued statements in recent days saying that fans should not be worried about their races on July 3 and July 10 respectively. France is particularly worried as this is the period in which it sold a lot of its tickets last year and the organisers are hoping for a repeat to push the sales up to around the 100,000 mark. The British GP has already sold 100,000 tickets. While everyone says that they are hopeful that the racing will not be further affected by politics at the moment there are no guarantees as there are going to be decisive meetings next week in Paris. The F1 teams, with the exception of Ferrari and Jordan, will meet on Tuesday in Paris, in part to discuss what will happen the following day at the FIA World Motor Sports Council and in part to look at the bigger picture of where F1 is going at the moment.
Until these two meetings are out of the way, there will be no clear picture of what is going to happen at Magny-Cours and at Silverstone.
