FIA issues fresh statement


Even as the World Motor Sport Council is meeting in Paris, the FIA has issued the following:

The FIA welcomes the announcement made by Michelin of a compensation package for the spectators of the 2005 United States Grand Prix.

However, the FIA strongly contests the version of events detailed in Michelin's press release of June 28 and rejects the views expressed by Edouard Michelin's widely publicised letter to the FIA President of June 27.

The exchange of correspondence between the FIA President and the Chief Executive of Michelin was deliberately leaked to members of the press, we are therefore placing the complete exchange of correspondence in the public domain.
