Fox motorsport boss John Cates has told the BBC’s Chris Boardman he must be thinking “a lot” about the latest incident involving his team’s motorsport team and the “bizarre” decision to take action against a team-mate.
“You can’t have it both ways, you can’t blame it on the team and blame it all on the driver,” said Cates.
“[But] we have got to look at it and ask ourselves, ‘Is this going to make the sport safer?'”
Fox have been forced to apologise to the team after a driver was taken off the track during the recent race in South Africa.
The incident happened on Sunday (local time) during the final round of the F1 Eurocup.
Race director Nick Chester told Sky Sports News HQ: “We’re absolutely in a very strange position because this happened on a track we’ve been working on for 20 years.”
I think it’s pretty hard to make this happen with such a small group of people.
“Fox, who were on their way to the next round in Australia, have now had to issue a public apology.
Cates said: “The team made a mistake in judgement.
The whole thing was quite bizarre.”
He said the team would now be looking into how the incident happened.”
We’ve just got to go through the process of how to get back to normal,” he said.
Fox are currently ranked fifth in the championship, four points behind Ferrari.
