F1 to discuss Spa spectator refunds

Formula 1 has rejected Lewis Hamilton’s claim that points were only distributed after the farcical Belgian GP because of considerations about money. “Everyone gets their money, but I think the fans should get theirs back,” he said. “I don’t know all the politics and the background or whether the two laps means they don’t get their money back but I don’t think that’s what we want. F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said the safety car and field only returned briefly to the track because “race management noticed a possible improvement in the weather”. As for Hamilton’s suggestion that the spectators should get their ticket money back, Domenicali is not ruling that out. As I said, the fans are our priority, and today they have proven that Formula 1 is very important to them.
