F1 to discuss customer cars

2012-10-23 11:47

TOP TEAMS TO HAVE MORE SAY: An FIA meeting will propose that F1's six top teams will have a say on the composition of future rules.

FIA president Jean Todt had a "constructive meeting" with Bernie Ecclestone and twelve team bosses in Paris.

The FIA reports that the meeting was to present teams with the 2013 Concorde Agreement and "new conditions of entry."

The FIA said it expects a final settlement to be reached in the "coming weeks".

CUSTOMER CAR PURCHASE

The meeting will also propose that only the six top teams (Ferrari, Red Bull, McLaren, Mercedes, Williams and Lotus) will have a say on the composition of future rules.

Another topic is the "definition of a customer car", relating to the possible sale of complete chassis from one team to another.

Customer cars could be a solution for struggling teams like HRT and Marussia, after Renault said it was not interested in supplying the currently Cosworth-powered pair with engines in the future.

If they were able to buy a complete car-engine package, it could reportedly be a different proposition.

A few teams objected in writing to Todt's plans to dramatically increase the entry fees for 2013.
