Belgian governments back embattled Spa GP

Belgian governments are throwing their weight behind efforts to save the embattled Belgian GP. “The sport is growing so much that there’s a lot of new places that I guess are paying quite a lot of money to be part of Formula 1,” said Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz. The local Walloon government, and also Belgium’s federal government, have now written a joint letter of support for Spa-Francorchamps to Formula 1. Not just that, economy minister Willy Borsus says a meeting between government, circuit and Formula 1 officials took place earlier this week. A decision about the fate of the Belgian GP is said to be imminent, with Borsus insisting that Spa-Francorchamps “still has a future in Formula 1”.
