New F1 Sporting Commission    (Score: 1, Normal) 05-30-2006 14:45

From the Autosport/Atlas article Posted Today

At the moment, six countries enter F1 teams, but Mosley said that Red Bull Racing will apply for an Austrian license, bringing the total to seven, leaving the split between the countries as follows:

Great Britain: McLaren, Williams and Prodrive;
Italy: Ferrari and Toro Rosso;
Japan: Honda, Toyota and Super Aguri;
France: Renault;
Germany: BMW;
Russia: Midland F1;
Austria: Red Bull Racing.

Mosley said that where there is more than one team from each country, "I think we would have to take the most senior team. For example, Honda is probably the senior Japanese team."

Mosley did not mention who would get the British vote, but autosport.com understands that Williams will be given priority, leaving McLaren out in the cold.

It's not clear what definition of the word "senior" is being used, because McLaren are ahead of Williams in the championship and have also been in the sport for longer


It sounds like Toyota and McLaren are going to be excluded from this new committee...and this is the committee that will decide technical regs?

LOL Maybe Honda can fight to have a reg added that it is illegal to build a car using stolen design data?

Interestingly stupid idea. Why would they break it up into countries? That is just weird. Maybe they want to push out Toyota and Mclarren so Mosley figured this was a way to do it?

Confirmed publicly by the FIA

As autosport.com revealed on Tuesday, McLaren and Toyota have been left out of the Commission.

The F1 Commission, the body that approves measures agreed by the Technical Working Group and the new Sporting Working Group, and then submits them to the World Motor Sport Council, will be formed by Red Bull, Ferrari, Renault, BMW Sauber, Honda and Williams.

The Commission also includes five race promoters, one representative from the commercial rights holder and one from the FIA.

Australia, Brazil, Hungary, Monaco and Spain have been chosen from all race promoters.

I think a country specific commission is a bad idea, but at least Honda got the nod instead of Toyota. I can't begin to imagine the type of regulations Toyota would approve or suggest in that same spot.
