Team principals expect British Grand Prix team officials will take on board the lessons from the traffic and parking problems that have overshadowed the Silverstone weekend, and ensure there is no repeat if the event is hit by such bad weather in the future.
Mercedes chiefs Ross Brawn and Norbert Haug, who believe that race officials did all they could under difficult circumstances to try and ensure that trouble was minimized after grass parking lots and campsites became waterlogged.
Brawn said: "I think there will be some lessons learned from this weekend. It's been a shame that we've had this after 2000 when we had a similar situation, and then there was a tremendous amount of work done with a very strong response from the BRDC [British Racing Drivers' Club] and the management of the circuit.
"It's a shame that we've had these difficulties and I'm sure the group will look at it and see if they can or will improve the situation for the future."
Haug added: "It has rained a lot before; you just couldn't have used the camping sites on a usual basis, and the parking lots. So I think the organizers were a little bit surprised. That needs to be changed for the future and I'm sure the responsible guys will be mindful of that. The fans are making the best of it and I find that quite impressive, and I think they deserve for the next year a perfect ending of this situation."
Although conceding that matters were not ideal, Brawn said that Silverstone's troubles should be compared to other major sporting and music events which had to be cancelled because they could not cope at all with the situation.
"It has been an incredibly extreme set of conditions over the past month or so and it's not just Silverstone that has been suffering because of the extreme weather," he said. "All sorts of events have been canceled. Lots of music festivals have had to be canceled.
"I think the fans have been fantastic. They are very enthusiastic here which is one of the reasons we like racing here. They are great, great fans and you could see the support they gave everyone during the period while we were waiting for the rain to stop so we could carry on qualifying. So it is a great place to race."
Team chiefs were not the only ones acknowledging the difficulties that Silverstone has faced, with Force India's Paul di Resta believing organisers did all they could.
"Every sporting event is getting affected in the UK at the moment. Everything is difficult. Hopefully the weather system will change and it certainly needs to change in time for the Olympics," he said. "I think everybody in the UK should feel part of this and I am a proud BRDC member. At the end of the day you can always do more, you can always do less, but nobody knew what we could expect.
"There were independent campsites as well and people bought packages to go and do that. How much of it can be controlled? But when have you ever seen grandstands full, on a Friday, when it's raining? We had a record-breaking crowd attendance."
