SPARE PARTS: McLaren is already supplying competing teams with equipment.

NOIDA, India - New fuel has been added to Ferrari's push to have three cars on the F1 grid.

After India, key officials will move on to Geneva, when next Thursday the F1 Commission will meet and La Stampa newspaper reports that one of the topics on the agenda will be the redefinition of “F1 constructor”.

Tthe news emerged after a team bosses’ meeting in India on Friday. The outcome of the commission vote will settle the debate about whether big teams should be able to rent or sell their chassis designs to smaller teams.


The Italian report said F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone was now on Ferrari's side for a change of definition for the 2013 Concorde Agreement. Ecclestone, reportedly, would like to see struggling teams such as HRT be able to, for example, buy a Ferrari chassis and improve the show by running more competitively and attracting more sponsors.

And the advantage for Ferrari would be to gain a satellite team to develop, for example its young drivers and engineers.

La Stampa said key voices, including those of McLaren and Red Bull, are opposed to the idea.he proponents, however, could argue that those teams are already sharing their intellectual property, including via McLaren's deal with Force India and that of Red Bull with Team Lotus.
