World Motor Sport Council - Decisions
« on: June 25, 2008, 02:19:02 PM »
The FIA has put out the following press release from the 25 June meeting of the World Motor Sport Council:

Quote
FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

The FIA will enter into a wide-ranging consultation with the Formula One teams to examine plans for improved efficiency, including new technical regulations for the Championship. This will also involve a review of the governance of Formula One.

Applications from teams wishing to compete in the 2009 Championship must be submitted to the FIA during the period 1 to 31 July 2008 inclusive.

The team entry fee for the 2009 Championship will be €309,000 (the 2008 fee plus a three per cent increase in line with inflation). The FIA will launch a consultation with the Formula One teams for the introduction of further fees to cover improved safety systems and equipment at every Grand Prix.

The FIA will invite tenders for a new feeder series for Formula One. This championship, called Formula Two, would be launched in 2009 and used as an inexpensive platform to develop emerging driver talent for Formula One. It is hoped this can be achieved within a budget of around €200,000 a car per season.

I thought they put out something early last year when they were politicking that entries for 2009 had to be in at the start of 2007 and over a very short time spell.

I also see that the British GP has moved foward again into June, methinks Bernie is trying to apply more pressure to Silverstone as the last time the GP was placed early it turned into a shambles because of the rain. June has always been more inclement in Britain than July.

The last paragraph, about the new F2 series, caught my attention, too. Where does that leave the Bernie / CVC controlled GP2? Sounds like another shot in the Bernie / Max war.

Also, there had been talk that the tire blanket ban for next season would be dropped. There is no mention of that, either.

They really have no idea, have they.

They keep going round in circles.

Amen!

By the way, has anyone looked at FIA accounts. Where does the €3million entry fees, plus license fees etc. go? I know teams get some travel allowances but I really have no idea how FIA allocates / spends the money.

CVC pay out the travel allowances from the TV money. It shouldn't be going through the FIA.

Note to Max: Creating a half-baked feeder formula to exacerbate the "more drivers than spaces in F1" problem with unrealistic entry fees will not solve your credibility problem.

I hadn't thought about it this way, but you have a very valid point.

in the early 1950's the actual indy 500 race was part of the F1 series but not many of the European drivers used to contest it.

I knew that SennaMan but I wonder why?You
think it was the travel or how dangerous Indy
was in those days,couldn't have been any worse
than Nurburgring though

Just a after thought SM,I don't think many people are
aware of the Tasman Series from the 60's either.

Thats where the f1 cars and drivers went in the off season

The main reason european drivers did not contest Indy was because it was always on the same day as Monaco.  Even when Lostus went in the 60s they had to miss Monaco.  One of the reason's Clark never won Monaco was because he missed four(?) to go to Indy.  In 1965 each driver's best 6 scores counted for the championship.  Clark won the title at round seven having won 6 races and missed the only wone he didn't win (Monaco) because he was winning Indy.

It was because they could had to drop scores in those days so they chose to miss ther most inconvenient events. Indy was inconvenient because of travel, and because it meant alot of messing to get the same cars competitive there. in other words it wasn't worth their while.

The Indy of recent years was run to the same rules with the same cars.
