The organizer behind the Grand Prix of Mexico has distanced himself from yesterday's statement from the Formula One Promoters' Association and supported Liberty.
The Mexican promoter clearly wanted to distance itself from any controversy that sparked FOPA's views and made a statement tonight, explaining his own views and complimenting Liberty.
He said he had not attended the Monday session, and stressed that he wanted to conduct negotiations from the public's perspective.

"In addition, the promoters of the Mexican Grand Prix welcome continued cooperation and good relations with the rest of the promoters."
"F1 Gran Premio de Mexico, however, did not attend the meeting and appreciated the work the new owners of F1 are doing to understand the needs and concerns of promoters and fans alike.
"The promoters of the Mexican Grand Prix acknowledge that the new F1 government has listened and was sensitive to their concerns, as both parties work very closely together. Therefore, they disagree with what the Formula One Promoters & # 39; Association has released on their behalf.
"The Mexican promoters and the F1 are continuing the negotiations privately for the renewal of the contract with the F1 Gran Premio de Mexico."
The five races that are believed to be outside the FOPA and therefore not considered parties to the original declaration are China, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Russia, and Japan.
