22 degrees, dry and solar morning expected Silverstone on output Monday, August 27, 2018... when all MotoGP teams have already packed suitcases and have moved forward towards Spain. The president of Dorna Sports Carmelo Espeleta has expressed concern in the decision of teams and pilots not to hold a race at all, than to postpone her to Monday, and still - it is better so, than...

Cancellation of a stage, cancellation of races is not only essential blow to reputation of the organizer and the promoter, but also reputation and financial loss for host is direct, Silverstone Circuit. Postponement of the Grand Prix of Great Britain for Monday could solve an array of problems. But it didn't happen. Have so solved teams. Or rather, factory teams. And then, pilots of MotoGP have refused to come for start under any circumstances. That is, at first the plants have never delivered to Dorna before a condition "races either today, or", and then pilots have told "is never better, than..." Point.

of Carmelo Espelet has given a detailed interview to the Spanish AS.com, one of partner editions of MotoGP on Monday when noise from cancellation of a stage has a little settled.

"This Monday - day off in England, and I don't understand why most of teams haven't wanted to act this day, - quotes the Spanish edition of the President of Dorna Sports. - As soon as after warm-up the rain, the first proposal which we had made - to postpone action to Monday by an example of the Grand Prix of Qatar of 2009 when there were similar stalemate conditions has begun. We have gathered all - teams and organizers. I don't understand a cause of failure. But nevertheless, we respect and we make this decision as it was accepted jointly. Therefore, we have passed to the plan of "B" - postponed start until improvement of a situation. Unfortunately, the situation hasn't improved until the end of day".

the Plan of "B" from Dorna and Commission on Security of MotoGP meant continuous monitoring of a situation on a track. Loris Kapirossi everyone half an hour left on Safety Car and checked - whether many waters on Silverstone asphalt. Unfortunately, while the rain continued, it was impossible to get rid of water. All services Silverstone Circuit have been involved in removing still water from a track. The chance that after a rain by 16:00, they will manage to remove pools was rather high. On damp and even wet asphalt, but without still water it was possible to hold a race in all three classes!

"Frankly speaking when we have understood that by 16:00 the rain won't stop, we have realized in advance that races won't be any more, - Espeleta continues. - In principle, the meeting with racers wasn't necessary. This meeting wasn't planned for that reason, she was spontaneous. Racers began to gather in office of IRTA, they have come to tell that they won't go. We didn't convene this meeting. But we already knew that this day, obviously, races won't be any more".

to Whom will make a claim now: Dorna Sports? Silverstone Circuit?

Under the contract, the party which has broken an event bears responsibility and has to pay - and it is Silverstone Circuit.
