Ross Brawn believes that Formula 1 will be in a ‘great place’ in six months and that remembering good times of racing is part of the key to the sports comeback.
Brawn, the managing director of F1, has had to deal with a hiatus in the 2020 FIA Formula 1 World Championship due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, which has resulted in a challenging time for F1, seeing the cancellation of several Grands Prix.
It has also seen the season postponed to a start in July with a doubleheader of races at the Red Bull Ring to start the season with the Austrian Grand Prix.
While speaking to Motorsport.com, he explained the positivity he felt surrounds Formula 1’s return and spoke of a fan-voted award that he won celebrating his roles in Formula 1.
“I think these very difficult times we’re facing at the moment. It’s great to remember the fantastic times that we’ve had in Formula 1, and indeed the fantastic times we’re going to have in the future.
“And it gives us inspiration to find our way through these difficult times. F1 was in a great place six months ago, and it’s going to be in a great place in another six months. This has really boosted me, and it’s very special.
“[It’s] a great group of people you voted for so far. Certainly a team I would have been honoured to work with. And I look forward to seeing who the rest of the pieces of the jigsaw are.”
