FIA approves new F1 rules

22 March 2006

In Paris the FIA had a meeting today concerning the rules for Formula 1 in 2008 and beyond. The FIA World Motor Sport Council approved the rules suggested in the meeting by Max Mosley.

The World Motor Sport Council also approved Mosley's suggestion to allow F1 teams to enter (or remain in) Formula 1 for 2008 and beyond between 24 March and 31 March 2006.

The entries for the 2008 Formula One championship will then be invited by the FIA to begin a series of meetings in order to finalise the regulations for 2008. ":The regulations which affect the design of the cars must be finalised before 30 June 2006 to give the competing teams sufficient time to design and develop their 2008 cars. The regulations not affecting the design of the cars can be modified at any point up to the start of the 2008 season," said a FIA statement.

It furthermore said: "A regulation can be modified following a majority vote of the Sporting Working Group, consisting of one senior representative from each team, and ratification by the Formula One Commission and the World Motor Sport Council."
