PARIS (Reuters) – Formula One bosses have recommended new security measures for the Brazilian Grand Prix.
The International Automobile Federation (FIA) said that the commercial rights holder had made the proposals following a report on incidents at Interlagos.
It recommended the race promoter retain an independent security expert to evaluate and advise on measures, with a police reporting hub at the circuit and improved communication between all parties.
“The World Council strongly urged the promoter to implement these recommendations and improve the situation ahead of next year’s event,” added the FIA.
“The FIA will offer to participate in discussions with the local authorities and closely monitor the situation.”
World champion Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes team was one of those involved in the incidents at Interlagos, with shots reportedly fired.
Valuables, including passports, were stolen.
