On behalf of the Grand Prix Drivers Association (GPDA) and all the Formula 1 drivers, I would like to personally thank all of you who took time to complete our Global Fan Survey.
The response was overwhelming: more than 200,000 of you replied with 52,000 man hours spent completing the biggest survey of its kind in sport. The results are staggering and the underlying message that has come out of it is clear.
Yes, Formula 1 is facing its challenges and can be improved. But you do not believe it needs a revolution and you do not want it to become an artificial show with gimmicks introduced to simply make it more entertaining.
Instead, you want the very same thing that us drivers want: pure racing amongst the best men in the best machines.
It is now time for us to look in close detail at the findings of the survey and from there work with F1's key stakeholders to make sure they listen and consider your input carefully.
In the meantime, please find attached an executive summary which reports the key findings and which we hope you will read and share.
I hope you enjoy looking at the facts as much as we did.
And remember, regardless of whether you walk, ride or drive on the road, Be safe! Road safety is no accident.
With thanks for all your input, time and insight,
Alex Wurz, Chairman of the GPDA
