Jun.1 (GMM) F1 can learn from its two-wheeled equivalent, according to Ferrari team boss Maurizio Arrivabene.

The Italian made a visit to Mugello at the weekend, as the Ferrari-owned circuit hosted the world of MotoGP.

“I believe that this category has a lot to teach formula one,” Arrivabene told Italian media.

“Here, if you a throw a stone in the stands, it would not hit the ground as there are so many people. Unbelievable.

“The paddock is also alive, with people walking between the riders and everyone talking to each other,” he added.

Earlier this year, Arrivabene criticised F1’s approach to the paddock, even staging a protest by taking to the grandstands during winter testing to sit and talk with the fans.

“Paddock exclusivity is stupid if it is empty,” he insisted at Mugello. “Here, I see plenty of young people even if some say that there are none, but the regulations and the organisation of formula one is not my job.

“I work for Ferrari to win,” Arrivabene added.
