Maybe they denied Prodrive an entry because of their failure to get a car ready for 2008, but IMO only USF1 will join.

You must remember too that Ferrari and Red Bull themselves might have a different opinion about those contracts they've signed years ago. FIA decided to put them on the list because it thinks those contracts are still in use but Ferrari has said openly that they think their contract isn't valid anymore.

Ali, you were late. :p

OMG, I must be asleep :p

Sorry guys.

Ferrari had said FIA cannot add their entry automatically. Do they might start a legal action? Err... frantic times.

No 2010 Grid Slot for MYF1DREAM (12/06/2009 08:56:30)

We unfortunately did not make it into the 2010 official entry list for the FIA F1 World Championship.

Thanks to the FIA and the F~0~M for all the support over the last few weeks, we will indeed place an entry for 2011 and come back stronger with more people on board and so many more features.

Thanks once again for all the support off each of our members, we can do this and 2011 is still in reach. Any feedback on what we can do to make this project better would be greatly appreciated so we can all move this team forward.

Many Thanks, Ashley.


Did they expect to get in.. :p :p

One thing that draws my attention that neither of Red Bull teams have finalized their engine supplier. Red Bull are using Renault and Toro Rosso are using Ferrari. New teams will use Cosworth engine.

FOTA asks WMSC to Intervene

Spoiler:
Quote:
The Formula One Teams' Association (FOTA) has written to the FIA's Senate and World Motor Sport Council urging it to intervene in the row over entries to next year's championship, AUTOSPORT can reveal, as it warns the teams could be forced to walk away.

In an immediate response to the announcement by the FIA that FOTA's members have until June 19 to drop the conditions attached to their entries, the eight members of the teams' organisation pleaded for help in finding a 'swift solution' to the matter.

This comes despite Ferrari, Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso all having been handed full entries to next year's championship - in lieu of commercial agreements made with the FIA and F~0~M committing them to the sport.

The letter makes it clear these entries were made ‘against the will' of the teams involved.

In the letter, a copy of which has been seen by AUTOSPORT, the FOTA members state that the teams would ‘reluctantly' be forced to seek alternative solutions if the matter is not sorted out by next week.

"All of these teams are united in their concerns about the present situation and are deeply worried about the crisis that Formula 1 now faces, a crisis that appears to be self generated," wrote FOTA.

"The teams wish to find a swift solution to the situation, but in case this can not be done, they will reluctantly have to seek alternative solutions which protect them.

"In a final attempt to resolve this crisis, further meetings are scheduled for the next seven days. We would urge your support to ensure the outcome of these meetings achieves a solution that allows long established competitors to continue in their sport within a framework of sound governance and stability that will ensure the future and sustainability of Formula 1."

FOTA believes that it has not been ‘effective' in communicating with the governing body about its aims - and makes it clear that it wants to work in a ‘positive and constructive manner with the federation' to find a solution.

"Our fundamental wish is to work within a framework of cooperation and dialogue with the Federation to improve Formula 1 and to stop the confrontational and negative approach that has dominated the sport in recent years," the letter added.

"This approach compounded with constant announcements of regulatory changes, resulting from the unstable governance process that exists, has unfortunately created a situation of confusion and uncertainty among the public and sponsors. This situation is adversely affecting the business of both the teams and the organisers."

Furthermore, FOTA believes that the organisation's unhappiness about the way the sport is being run could be eased y the signing of a new Concorde Agreement.

"It is our view that by introducing the balanced and transparent basis of Governance which is defined in the 2009 Concorde Agreement (governance extract enclosed) we can restore a situation where the teams work in harmony with the Federation, a situation which can only be beneficial to all stakeholders.

"Accordingly, we have requested that the FIA join with F~0~M and the teams to sign a binding agreement that will bring stability at the very earliest opportunity, or alternatively, enter into a separate bi-lateral governance agreement between the teams and the FIA."

The letter added: "We wish to confirm that the teams are prepared to enter into binding commitment to enter in the championship until the end of 2012. This eliminates the misconception that certain teams are going to leave the sport and in doing this Formula 1 will establish a solid and stable platform for the future.

"All of the present competing teams in Formula 1 have significant investments in staff, factories and facilities. We request our level of commitment is respected and that we are allowed to address the changes needed due to the present economic climate in the most effective and efficient way for the participants with the correct governance from the regulatory body, the FIA.

"The existing FOTA teams understand the need to encourage and assist new entrants to the sport and we agree to undertake in good faith any reasonable measures that will help new teams establish their position in Formula 1."


Williams pleased with F1 entry

Quote:
Spoiler:
The Williams team says it is "pleased" its entry for the 2010 Formula 1 championship has been accepted by the FIA.

Williams was, along with Force India, the only team to have submitted an unconditional entry for next year's championship and, as expected, the FIA confirmed it on Friday.

"The AT&T Williams team is pleased to confirm that its entry to the 2010 FIA Formula One World Championship has been accepted by the FIA," said the team in a statement.

Team boss Frank Williams added: "2010 will be my 42nd consecutive season in Formula 1. We are already designing the main elements of next year's FW32 which will build on the useful step forward taken with the FW31."


Ferrari won't race if conditions not met

Spoiler:
Ferrari has made it clear that it will not compete in next year's world championship unless the conditions it attached to its entry are met by the governing body.

The Maranello-based outfit was included on the official 2010 entry list because the FIA believes the team committed itself to racing in F1 as part of deals signed with the governing body and the FIA several years ago.

However, Ferrari insists that the terms of the agreement it made in the past have been breached by the FIA - which means it cannot be forced to race.

In a statement issued on Friday morning, Ferrari insisted that it will not compete next year unless it is satisfied with the rules in place.

"Ferrari submitted on 29 May 2009 an entry to the 2010 FIA Formula One World Championship which is subject to certain conditions," said the statement. "As of today, these conditions have not been met.

"Notwithstanding this and despite Ferrari's previous written notice to the FIA not to do so, the FIA has included Ferrari as an unconditional participant in next year's Formula One World Championship.

"For the avoidance of any doubt, Ferrari reaffirms that it shall not take part in the 2010 FIA Formula One World Championship under the regulations adopted by the FIA in violation of Ferrari's rights under a written agreement with the FIA."

All the teams on this list will race, including Ferrari, I am sure and convinced that they will find a solution, they are already getting closer to eachother. We will have a lovely grid, with 26 cars!

Another surprising thing: We (F1Zone) are not on the list.. :lol:

I'm doubtful that Campos and Manor will build a good enough car in time though... Drivers? I wonder who they'll bring in.

But people should stop knocking Campos as an outfit, as they are not a GP2 team, he sold them to Barwa Addax, so this project is starting from scratch, although I'd rather Prodrive or Lola than Manor.

Prodrive disappointed; remain optimistic

Spoiler:
Prodrive boss David Richards has expressed his disappointment at the decision by the FIA not to include his team on next year's official entry list, but has still not totally given up on seeing his outfit make the grid in 2010.

With continued uncertainty about the future of the eight Formula One Teams' Association (FOTA) members, and them having until June 19 to drop the conditions attached to their entries, there remains a chance other new teams could be added to the roster.

AUTOSPORT understands that the FIA is remaining in dialogue with at least three or four F1 hopefuls who could be granted entries if current teams drop out.

Richards said he would keep a close eye on events over the next week, although said his focus for now was on this weekend's Le Mans 24 Hours - where he is competing with Aston Martin.

"We are naturally disappointed by the FIA's decision not to include Prodrive in the preliminary entry list for 2010 as we believe we have the resources and set-up to be competitive in Formula 1 and would make a positive contribution to the sport," said Richards in a statement issued on Friday.

"We will wait to see how things develop in the next week, up to the 19th June deadline set by the FIA and we remain prepared and ready to implement our plans should the circumstances allow. As we have seen before, there are quite often many twists and turns in Formula 1.

"However, this weekend our attention is one hundred percent focused on our Aston Martin team at Le Mans. For the first time we are challenging for outright victory with a three-car line-up, following two consecutive GT1 class wins, on the 50th anniversary of Aston Martin's historic 1959 win at the circuit de La Sarthe."

Cosworth to power new entries
Spoiler:
Cosworth has agreed relationships with three teams whose entries to the 2010 Formula One World Championship have been accepted by the FIA.

An identical package comprising high-performance Cosworth engine and technical support will be provided for Campos Grand Prix, Manor Grand Prix and Team US F1 for a period of three years.

“I am pleased that Cosworth's exceptional mix of capabilities has enabled us to provide a solution for Formula One that sits so neatly with our existing operations in the aerospace and defence sectors," stated CEO Tim Routsis. "Cosworth is proud not only to be able to provide a solution that will deliver the performance needed by these teams to compete in this most technologically challenging sport, but also to extend its long association with Formula One as a truly independent provider of competitive motive power.

“The engineering expertise we have accumulated over four decades in the sport has enabled us to broaden our reach into many different high-technology sectors," Routsis continued. "Today our engineering capabilities extend beyond racing, encompassing high-technology applications in the aerospace, defence, energy, marine and automotive industries. Cosworth has the necessary infrastructure to fulfil the supply of Formula One engines without affecting our other activities.”

Cosworth first raced in Formula One in 1967 with the DFV winning first time out. The firm last competed in the series with the Williams team in 2006 with the CA2006 powerplant.

RBR: "Our entry is conditional!"
Spoiler:
Red Bull Racing has moved quickly to assert that, despite the FIA's announcement, the teams entry to the 2010 Formula One World Championship is conditional on the terms laid out to the FIA by the Formula One Teams Association. Earlier today the FIA announced the 2010 entry list showing Red Bull Racing, Scuderia Toro Rosso, and Ferrari as unconditional entrants - belived to be based on a prior agreement for those teams to take part beyond 2009.

The remaining FOTA teams of McLaren, BMW, Renault, Toyota, and Brawn are listed as condiotional applicants.

Red Bull Racing however insist that their application is only on the same basis and have released the following statement.

Following the FIA’s publication of the entry list for the 2010 FIA Formula One World Championship, Red Bull Racing would like to make it clear that its entry was submitted as a conditional entry, consistent with those of all other FOTA members.

Red Bull Racing remains committed to FOTA and fully endorses all its principles.
