F1 provides update on Belgian GP refunds

F1 has issued an update for fans that attended the Belgian Grand Prix after continued calls for fans to be refunded.

The race at Spa-Francorchamps was washed-out with only two laps behind the safety car possible, with supporters waiting in the rain for three hours as the start was delayed.

In the immediate aftermath, championship leader Lewis Hamilton called for refunds for supporters after what he described as a "farce".

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali initially dismissed ideas the sport could refund the fans before a U-turn was made to hold discussions between the sport and the race promoters.

It is understood there has been a small number of fan requests for refunds in the days since.

A statement from F1 reads: "Following the impact of the weather on the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday 29th August, Formula 1 and the promoter are working through various options for ticket holders, to express our recognition and thanks to them for their dedication and commitment.

"We will provide further details as soon as possible as we want to thank the fans for their continued support and passion for Formula 1."

GPFans Global has learned that an announcement is expected on the matter in the next week.
