The Williams F1 team has been ‘temporarily’ suspended from the Formula One Teams’ Association (FOTA) following their decision to submit a formal entry for the 2010 F1 World Championship. The decision was announced earlier today after a FOTA meeting held in London.

“FOTA’s decision, although regrettable, is understandable. However, as a racing team and a company whose only business is Formula One, with obligations to our partners and our employees, submitting our entry to next year’s Championship was unquestionable,” said Williams’ F1 team principal Frank Williams upon the announcement.

“In addition, we are legally obliged under our contract with FOM and the FIA to participate in the World Championship until the end of 2012,” he added.
