If you are attending next week's Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal, here's your chance to meet face to face with leading figures from the sport; team principals, engineers and drivers at the FOTA Fans Forum in Montreal on Thursday June 9th at 6pm at the Omni Mont-Royal Hotel, 1050 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal.

The FOTA Fans Forum, launched last summer at a pioneer event in London, is a unique opportunity for the fans and the sport to come together and exchange ideas. In no other sport do the competitors engage with the fans in this direct way.

Fans will have the opportunity to ask questions and to offer their points of view on all the key talking points in the sport at the moment - such as the overtaking, DRS wing, Pirelli tyres, F1 in North America, the internet - the floor is yours, you set the agenda. I will be the moderator.

The panel discussion for Montreal is split into three sessions, each of which will last 30 minutes.

THE BIG PICTURE

Martin Whitmarsh, FOTA Chairman, Team Principal, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes

Eric Boullier, FOTA Vice Chairman, Team Principal, Lotus Renault GP

THE RACING AND OVERTAKING, HOW PIRELLI TYRES, DRS, KERS ETC HAS CHANGED THE RACING IN 2011.

Heikki Kovalainen, Driver, Team Lotus

Mike Gascoyne, Chief Technical Officer, Team Lotus

Nico Hulkenberg, Driver, Force India F1 Racing

THE FAN EXPERIENCE, THE SHOW, THE SPORT IN NORTH AMERICA, INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA

Adam Parr, Chairman, AT&T Williams

Gerard Lopez, Chairman, Lotus Renault GP*

John Allert, Group Brand Director, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes,

(* to be confirmed)

The aim of this event, which we are organising in conjunction with the Formula One Teams Association, is to bring the fans closer to the sport. It offers the chance to engage face to face with the key decision makers and to have your voices heard.

There will be further FOTA Fans Forum events in the UK on June 30th and Italy on September 7th. More details on how to apply for a place on those events will come out nearer the time.

If you would like to attend the Montreal event please send an email to info@teamsassociation.org or if you like to james@jamesallenonf1.com stating your name, your email address, home town, contact telephone number and any question you would like to ask. We will try to get through as many questions and points of view as possible in the 90 minute session.

A response email from FOTA will be necessary for entry to the event.

I look forward to seeing you there.
