It happened rather quickly after the Canadian GP and before the start of my Eurotrip for Le Mans and British GP. I had a quick chat with Raziff from SGP to share my opinion on the issues in Montreal, and he was kind enough to offer me the audience of this year’s Singapore GP volunteers by featuring some excerpts from my earlier blog post in the new Off-track newsletter.
After reading the published article I was a bit concerned that I sounded very insensitive to the situation, which I definitely am not – I am sincerely saddened by the outcome and send my condolences to the family and friends of the poor marshal. (I do expect to get a slap in the face by a Canadian who may have taken offence to my words at the next event I volunteer in Canada) Though the sentiment I heard both in France and the UK is very much shared by other marshals. We could never be too safe volunteering.
