Former McLaren Formula 1 racing director Eric Boullier is back as part of the French Grand Prix organisation team.
Boullier was often the man facing up to the press to explain McLaren’s continued woes until he resigned from the role back in the summer of 2018.
After spending some time away from the spotlight, Boullier is back involved with Formula 1 as a ‘strategic advisor (sport and operational)’ and a ‘global ambassador’ for the French Grand Prix.
“I am happy and proud to have the opportunity to collaborate again with the French Grand Prix organisation,” said Boullier in a statement.
“I attach particular importance to this French Grand Prix and I look forward to contributing to the success of this major motorsport event.
“I thank Christian Estrosi for his trust and I am delighted to bring him my experience and my determination.”
It was a less than ideal return to the Formula 1 calendar for the French Grand Prix at the Paul Ricard circuit.
The main issue being the high levels of traffic that made getting to and from the circuit an arduous affair.
