There will be number Le Mans, F1 date clash below Chase Carey'south new look

The promoters of both Formula one and the twenty-four Hours of Le Mans show up to be entering a new era of collaboration.

During the weekend, new F1 CEO Chase Carey was the honorary official starter of the fabled twenty-four hr race in France. But just a year ago, the presently ousted F1 leading official Bernie Ecclestone was accused of having deliberately engineered a date clash between Le Mans and the F1 race in Baku.

"We are demonstrating the new relationship between the (Le Mans organiser) ACO (Automobile Club de l'Ouest) and Formula one," said ACO chief Pierre Fillon. "With Chase Carey at the top of F1, the time has arrive to work together on a motorsport calendar that allows fans to appreciate both Formula One and the races of the World Endurance Championship," he added.

F1 driver Nico Hulkenberg won Le Mans in two thousand-fifteenth, but was unable to chase up his triumph a year later due to the Baku clash. And now, the German is a full-works Renault driver.

"At the moment, I don't think I'm lost participating in Le Mans," he told Firstpost. "I am focused on the Renault project and I'd love to give this my best shot in the following few years. But for the future, who knows?"
