The meeting between the Formula One Teams Association( FOTA) and the FIA ended with no compromise being made regarding the ‘two tier’ ruling for next years championship.
FIA’s Max Mosley said after the meeting that there would be no compromise on the controversial regulation, adding that he doubted that Ferrari would quit F1.
“The idea that they are indispensable is nonsense,” said Mosley. “It’s a little bit like poor Senna. He was the most important driver in 1994 but when he very sadly got killed Formula One went on. Lotus were very important once, so were Brabham.”
He went on to say that the teams had ‘gone off to reconsider’. Ferrari immediatley hit back at the FIA by seeking a legal injunction in France, to stop the ruling taking effect for the 2010 season.
