Paul Ricard boss Gerard Neveu has stepped down from his post, no doubt stemming from a possible conflict of interest in the wake of the announcement that he was heading up a taskforce set up to bring the French Grand Prix back on the Formula 1 calendar.
We reported last week that French Prime Minister François Fillon has announced the formation of the group – made up of Neveu, Renault F1 boss Eric Boullier and ex-cabinet minister Gilles Dufeigneaux – to revive the Grand Prix, which has been off the calendar since 2008.
One of the suggestions was that the race could return to the Paul Ricard circuit on an alternating basis with the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps.
