GPDA reveals launch date for Global Fan Survey

The Grand Prix Drivers’ Association has revealed that it will launch its plans for a Global Fan Survey tomorrow in the paddock at the Monaco Grand Prix.

At 17:30 (local time) following the F1 drivers' briefing, GPDA chiefs will meet the media to discuss the GPDA Global Fan Survey.

A statement read: “With the GPDA Global Fan Survey, the grand prix drivers aim to create the most extensive, in-depth survey of fan opinion ever undertaken by any sport in the world.”

The directors of the GPDA – Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel and Alex Wurz – will all take part in the launch, which will take place outside Bernie Ecclestone’s motorhome.

The GPDA's media partner in delivering the Global Fan Survey will also be revealed.

Speaking during the FIA press conference at Monaco today, Button said: "I think the fans are very important, and that is exactly why the GPDA has a Global Fan Survey which will be announced tomorrow at 5.30pm.

"It is massively important. We need the fans, we have millions of fans around the world. It is interesting to see what their opinion is, where the sport goes.

"There is always room for improvement, especially a sport that is changing like F1. It will be important and will be interesting to see how it goes."
