Remark of the working day

Increasing prices throughout the world is likely to set force on F1 in various places, from provide chains to sustaining staff members quantities and of training course attracting buyers. At the time ticket gross sales commence to fall, it could set the F1 calendar at danger with circuits not able to go over the prices of internet hosting a grand prix.

But F1’s CEO Stefano Domenicali thinks currently being a environment championship will be an gain when it arrives to these difficulties.

Remaining world-wide does not assistance in and of by itself but currently being connected with authoritarian regimes who really don’t treatment about the prices connected with sportswashing will assistance insulate F1’s base line. But is that healthier for the activity in the extended phrase?

Venues that depend on ticket gross sales to carry on are likely to battle in the following couple of a long time as attendance will inevitably fall unless of course selling prices fall as very well. Both way, the tracks will not make as considerably cash which indicates significantly less likelihood to spend the internet hosting payment, et cetera.Leroy
