Adam Parr, Williams F1 CEOThe AT&T Williams F1 team has submitted earlier today its entry for the 2010 Formula One World Championship. Despite this being in contrast with what stated on Sunday by the F1 teams’ Association over their attempt to change next year’s budget cap regulations, Williams CEO Adam Parr has suggested that the team’s 2010 entry doesn’t mean they’re looking to ruin the unity of FOTA (Formula One Teams’ Association).

“The unity of FOTA is of paramount importance to Williams. Yesterday we joined the other members of FOTA in writing to the FIA to request a continuing effort to find a compromise concerning the regulations for 2010,” said Parr.

“We believe that under the leadership of FOTA president Luca Cordero di Montezemolo and Toyota motorsport president John Howett, FOTA has extracted some very significant concessions from the FIA,” he added.

“Williams has a binding contract with both Formula One Management and the FIA to participate in the world championship from 2008 to 2010,” continued Parr. “We have been paid in full for our participation and we feel both morally and legally obliged to make it clear that we will participate in Formula One in the future as we have in the past 30 years. We owe this to our employees, our sponsors and the fans, all of whom are affected by statements that the teams may not enter next year’s championship,” he explained.
