FOTA is now planning to hold a series of Fans' Forums this year following the success of its latest event in Barcelona earlier this week.
More than 200 fans attended the event in downtown Barcelona to pose questions to a number of leading Formula 1 figures, including Pedro de la Rosa, Vitaly Petrov, Lotus boss Eric Boullier and Mercedes-Benz motorsport boss Norbert Haug.
On the back of similar Fans' Forums last year in Woking, Montreal, and Milan proving a hit with fans, FOTA is now trying to organise a number of them to coincide with races throughout 2012.
FOTA's secretary general Oliver Weingarten told AUTOSPORT: "One of the key tenets of FOTA is to engage with the fans. The Fans' Forums have proven to be a success for the teams, whilst moreover have really resonated with the fans, who are not only passionate about the sport, but are also extremely knowledgeable as was evidenced at the Barcelona FOTA Fans' Forum earlier this week.
"Accordingly it is our intention to work with various circuits and stakeholders to have a comprehensive schedule of Forums and other forms of promotional activity this season."
