Todt was prokomentiroval in Melbourne the statement of brown: “I am delighted that the people of Liberty is concerned with the future of the sport. I respect their contribution and is willing to listen to their wishes, but the main power in decision-making is concentrated in the hands of the FIA.Only we create and control regulations”.
Cars are faster, but their passing characteristics are affected, so that the emergence of a new set of rules is on the agenda.
“I was surprised that last year’s pole position was slower, only 1.7 seconds, although we were promised a raise in five seconds, – the President continued. – Perhaps this is due to features of the route”.

“This year, the organizers of the stage in Melbourne sold 300 million tickets – quoted Todt in Autoweek. – In 2016, the figure was only 220 thousand.
