In the same boat as many other sports, Todt says that Formula 1 will need to accept that it not an essential part of society and that manufacturers and sponsors could look to invest elsewhere.
"We must be humble," continued Todt. "Even if we love motorsport, it is not essential for society. So we have to ensure that we make proper choices and wise decisions. In fact, what's needed is a complete rethink of how we go motor racing."
