Tony Fernandes, the team Principal of the new Lotus F1 team will deliver the keynote address on the first day of the 2009 Motor Sport Business Forum in Monaco.

All eyes will be on the Grimaldi Forum next Wednesday morning as Fernandes, talks about his new team, his innovative ideas for sponsorship and monetisation of the team and his ambitions within Formula One. I will be putting the questions to him. Send me a suggestion for a question and if I like it and think it's appropriate, I'll add it to the list.

Fernandes has been a sponsor in F1 for four years through his Air Asia airline and its deal with Williams. At the core of his F1 plan is partnership with the Malaysian Government and state affiliated companies. He plans to move the entire operation to Malaysia in time.

Another new team principal, Alex Tai of Virgin Racing, will be speaking at the Forum as will the CEO of the Mercedes F1 team, Nick Fry and a host of big names from the sport. The event runs for two days December 9th and 10th.

The Motor Sport Business Forum is in its fifth year and is at the heart of a busy week of motorsport activity with circuit owners meetings, F1 Commission meeting on the 10th and the World Council meeting on December 11th. The FIA gala at which Jenson Button and Ross Brawn will collect their world champions trophies will be on Friday night.
