Jean Todt’s FIA Chief of Staff responds to Inside Line open letter

In the aftermath of the Australian Grand Prix fuel flow debacle, through Inside Line an open letter was written to FIA President Jean Todt (here>>>) to which we have received a reply.

We are pleasantly surprised that the FIA has engaged us in this as it shows an honest attempt by the governing body to reach out beyond the traditional Formula 1 media outlets and embrace the constantly growing alternative media which cover the sport. Here is the response in full:

Dear Mr Velasco,

I am contacting you with regard to your recent letter in which you shared with us your thoughts on the opening rounds of the 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Jean Todt, the President of the FIA, would like to thank you for your letter and has also asked me to commend you on the passion with which you undoubtedly follow motor sport and Formula One in particular.

    Velasco’s letter was primarily a journalistic tool to court controversy.

    The fuel flow limit is there because the turbo technology enables potential momentary boosting of power to unbelievable heights. I read somewhere that the engines could deliver a 2000bhp burst (from the current 750bhp).

    This was considered entirely unsafe by everybody concerned (and Velasco surely knew this).

    However, I did love the picture of the garden water flow sensor LOL 🙂
