There are extreme circumstances when the most important sporting fixtures must be cancelled, in the interests of the safety of both the participants and the spectators. This applies to all major sports, and I presume it applies to Formula One motor racing. What I would like to know is what circumstances would warrant the cancellation of an F1 meeting?
Like many other enthusiasts I feel that the 1998 Belgian Grand Prix should have been cancelled or postponed. Perhaps the FIA would throw some light on this subject and state when an F1 race would be cancelled.
Having made my point regarding safety, I would like to congratulate everybody at Jordan Grand Prix for their brilliant victory at Spa, a victory well deserved and long overdue. I hope it will be the first of many in the years to come.
I am, yours, etc. Frank Lougmin, Dublin, Ireland
