Mosley writes to the teams
FIA President Max Mosley has this morning (Thursday), sent the folloiwng letter to the teams.
Formula One is becoming unsustainable. The major manufacturers are currently employing up to 1000 people to put two cars on the grid. This is clearly unacceptable at a time when all these companies are facing difficult market conditions.
Also, with attention on energy problems world-wide, Formula One cannot afford to be profligate in its use of fuel. Indeed, without the KERS initiative, some major sponsors might already have left.
The FIA is therefore inviting the teams to make proposals
The matter is now urgent. We need proposals which we can turn into detailed rules. These must be ready within three months and have the support of at least a majority of the teams, failing which the FIA will itself prepare new rules for 2011.
Professor Goeschel has kindly agreed to hold meetings of FOMAC to discuss these issues directly with the manufacturers.
