    #F1 News: FOTA - 2011 Fan's Forum, Woking

    2011 FANS FORUM: WOKING, 30 JUNE 2011.

    The Formula One Teams Association (FOTA) is pleased to announce its second Fans Forum of 2011. The event, powered by Santander, is going to take place at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking on 30 June, beginning at 11.00am.

    The Forum will be split into three sections, as follows:

    PART 1: THE BIG PICTURE
    This segment will focus on The Show, and how to improve it. The racing, the rules, the calendar and the television coverage are some of the topics that will come under the spotlight, and answering your questions will be the following:
    - Martin Whitmarsh, FOTA chairman and team principal of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes
    - Ross Brawn, team principal of the Mercedes GP Petronas F1 Team
    - Graeme Lowdon, chairman, Marussia Virgin Racing
    - Robert Fernley, deputy team principal, Force India F1 Team

    "Formula One is nothing without its fans," says Ross Brawn. "We're always looking for ways to improve the sport and this is your opportunity to tell us what you think."

    PART 2: TECHNICAL INSPECTION
    How have the technical changes for 2011 affected the racing, and what else would you like to see introduced? Put your questions to some of F1’s brightest brains, as follows:
    - Paddy Lowe, technical director, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes
    - James Allison, technical director, Lotus Renault GP
    - Paul Monaghan, head of race engineering, Red Bull Racing

    PART 3: THE DRIVERS
    Two F1 drivers will be at the Forum. The floor will be yours to ask them questions, but FOTA will take the opportunity to highlight the initiatives to support Japan. The drivers will be:
    - Lewis Hamilton, 2008 World Champion, driver for Vodafone McLaren Mercedes
    - Kamui Kobayashi, driver, Sauber F1 Team

    "I started watching F1 as a fan back in the late '80s," says Lewis Hamilton. "Back then I would have loved to meet some of the sport's participants, so I think this is a great initiative by FOTA."

    Tickets to all Fans Forums are limited and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. People wanting to attend the event in Woking are asked to email a question to the panel, including their contact details and, if possible, their twitter accounts, to the following email address: info@teamsassociation.org.

    Successful applicants will receive a confirmation email from FOTA. Entry to the McLaren Technology Centre will be strictly by confirmation email only.
