Mattia Binotto has suggested that Formula 1 is in for a difficult meeting in Paris this week.

On Wednesday, the ten teams are meeting at the FIA's headquarters to discuss with the governing body and Liberty Media the proposed rules revolution for 2021.

The already-delayed deadline for finalisation of the regulations is 31 October, making this week's meeting the last real opportunity for agreement.

But it emerged at Suzuka that only four of the ten teams are currently willing to sign up for what is being proposed.

Issues to contend

"Let's just say that some controversial issues remain.
