F1 organisers tried to injure me claims Greenpeace protestor

Greenpeace activist on the podium at Spa

Greenpeace activist on the podium at Spa

The Greenpeace activist who disrupted the podium ceremony at Spa on Sunday has accused race officials of trying to hurt her, before kicking her in the face.

Identified only as 23-year-old ‘Julia F’ by the German newspaper Bild, the activist was abseiling onto the podium after the Belgian Grand Prix while David Coulthard was interviewing winner Sebastian Vettel.

“We are a bit confused down here because the crowd is booing and cheering and booing and we don’t understand why,” Vettel told Coulthard.

Coulthard responded: “We’re not going to highlight why that is at the moment.”

Some had expected the FIA to launch an investigation or possibly penalise the race organiser, but so far the Jean Todt-led governing body has been silent.

‘Julia’, however, has accused race organisers of heavy-handed tactics.

“They tried to cut my rope,” Bild, revealing that Julia is from Switzerland, quoted her as saying.

“I would have fallen five metres. And in my arrest, they put a boot to my face,” she added. (GMM.)

    yeah, whineywhiney now.. dumb c*nt. She choose herself to participate in goldfish-hippie-activist-nonsens. fregging green terrorism it is!

    I hate greenpeace’rs with every fiber in my body, hypocrite idiots..

    I guess they took cars to get to the track.. they sponsored the event by buying gold-ticktes and paddock-tickets, they had a fregging helicopter.. (which we all know uses a LOT of fuel.. very bad fuel also!) then they used all kinds of rappelling gear.. which all has nice colours, and are only possible by the grace of oil. etc etc. It is actually a shame that they made their goal.. the whole world hears the name green-wars again..

    It is about time the media just kills them with silence, what ever they do, just never mention it! that way it because as useless to them as it actually is!

    Oh my goodness. Did the poor girl not realise that she could be at risk. should have stayed at home!

  • Matthias O’keeffe

    That’s your problem… You can’t blame the organizers… You want to protest and cost chaos, so you are to blame, not the organizers, not the FIA, not anyone but you protesters..

    F1 got lucky that it was Greenpeace protesting and not Al’Qaeda. Greenpeace did F1 a favor by exposing their poor security but F1 won’t see it, they’ll just hide that most embarrasing moment as best they can. Nice one GP!

  • Loln

    Send her to India.

  • Burp

    She’s lucky I wasn’t there… she wouldn’t be able to talk. ;)

    Keep “Eco/Green whingers out of RACING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    It’s bad enough we’re forced to see hybrids in F1.

  • hhdkfh

    These Greenpeace bastards are all a bunch of hippie terrorists. That girl is lucky they didn’t set the dogs on her arse.

    hhdkfh –

    We see what kind of liberla pinko hippie you are with your comments, my beagle’s IQ is probably higher than yours, King Littledick…

    Go suck a tree root somewhere and leave F1 to tthe real fans!

  • ovphoto

    that bitch has got no reason to be there she should be jailed for trespassing-this is a sporting event not a free range for every nut case that comes out of the woodwork

  • ovphoto

    to –hhdkfh –so how did you get there-maybe beam me up scotty–our world runs on oil-live with it-even the caveman used oil- if you don’t like it go live somewhere in the world that doesn’t use oil–which is no where on this planet-and who cares what a persons IQ is-we all depend on oil a simple fact of life–or maybe you’d rather rely on uranium**** and glow at nite

    Wow, there sure are a lot of weird & aggressive comments here.

  • Spartacus

    Motorsports is about getting the most out of fuels possible. The most power, and the most distance. There’s an efficiency in that which Greenpeace obviously have missed.

    Since the EU started forcing oil companies to use 5% biofuels in petrol my car has been 10% less efficient; that’s 10% less distance per tank. There’s nothing “green” about adding this biofuel.

    It’s all greenwashing to keep these activists happy. They’d be better spending their energies on dispelling some of the green myths and promoting any genuine green initiatives.
