With the restrictions over flying through European airspace now lifted thanks to the volcanic ash dissipating, the six jumbo-jet load of F1 freight has been safely transported to Bilbao, Spain.
It is expected that the teams’ equipment and cars will be arriving back at their respective factories in the coming days, ensuring that their all-important major upgrades can be installed in time for the next round, the Spanish GP, in a fortnight’s time.
Race organisers for the upcoming Grand Prix remain confident that the event will go ahead completely unaffected.
Ramon Prederas, the boss of the Circuit de Catalunya, said that "everything is in place" for the event.
"We are ready and working with absolute normality. The cloud of the volcano did not affect us," he told Diario Sport, also confirming that ticket sales are currently 10% higher than at the same time last year.
I guess that’s two points of good news then!
