Luca Cordero di Montezemolo and Max MosleyFollowing the decisions taken by the FIA World Motor Sport Council after a meeting held in Paris this morning, FOTA (Formula One Teams’ Association) chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo issued a statement expressing FOTA’s disappointment and concerns at the way those decisions were taken.

“With regard to the decisions taken today by the FIA World Motor Sport Council, FOTA would like to express its disappointment and concern at the fact that these have been taken in a unilateral manner,” said di Montezemolo.

“The framework of the regulations as defined by the FIA, to be applicable as from 2010, runs the risk of turning on its head the very essence of Formula 1 and the principles that make it one of the most popular and appealing sports,” he continued.

“Given the timeframe and the way in which these modifications were decided upon, we feel it is necessary to study closely the new situation and to do everything, especially in these difficult times, to maintain a stable framework for the regulations without continuous upheaval, that can be perplexing and confusing for car manufacturers, teams, the public and sponsors,” he added.
