German Grand Prix hosts Hockenheim have added their weight to Formula One Promoters Association (FOPA) gripes about the way Liberty Media are managing the sport but at the same time suggests that progress is being made in finding a satisfactory working arrangement.

Hockenheim chief Georg Seiler told Auto Bild, “Little consideration is afforded Grand Prix race organisers.

But he also suggested that progress is being made with the sport’s owners, “The discussions with Liberty Media have been constructive and is something we want to underline.”

“With regard to recent discussions, however, Hockenheim has been on the side of FOPA, as promoters are under-represented in key decisions for the future of Formula 1,” he added.

FOPA, who represent the interests of most of the circuit promoters, aired their grievances late last month whereby they accuse Liberty of being and lacking clarity and being disjointed.
