Haas F1 Team driver Romain Grosjean has called Formula One narrowed minded after he was ordered by Formula One Management to take down live video footage of the Haas F1 Team VF16 in action in Barcelona during a filming day on his Facebook page.
Speaking to Motorsport.com, Grosjean stated that FOM instructed him to remove the video from Facebook.
Up until it was removed the video had received over one million views. The Frenchman stated:
I think it’s great, it allows people to see F1, what it’s like inside, behind the scenes, but we’re not allowed. F1 is too narrow-minded – we say that we lose fans, but nowadays, social networks have so many billion people in the world – and we’re not allowed to make the most of them.
