When you’re organising an event like this, where do you even start?
Well, after the last race, we start the very next day. We look at all the info and analyse what went well and where the challenges were, and we try to find solutions. I also visit five to six GPs to talk with partners and teams to listen to their feedback and take all that into account. The great thing is that all the fans who bought a grandstand ticket this year can already order the same ticket today, so we keep in touch with the fans.
What’s the biggest challenge?
There are so many challenges. whether it’s logistics, traffic flow, ticket sales, catering, IT. There are so many variables and fitting all the pieces of the jigsaw together is the biggest challenge of all. It’s an enormous task and a lot of people work on it, but when we manage it, it’s the best feeling in the world.
