Staging a Formula One race _ or other major sporting event _ is a quick way for a country with a "tainted brand" to improve its image, according to a leading executive of the motorsport series.
Top business executives warned Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday that he could damage Britain's economy by inadvertently taking the country out of the European Union.
F1 board member Martin Sorrell said on Thursday that "running a sporting event does have political implications."
"It's ill-advised to believe that events will not have political ramifications," Sorrell said.
