No official statement has emerged since today’s lengthy meeting of the F1 Strategy Group in Biggin Hill, and which was attended by Bernie Ecclestone, Jean Todt and representatives of Ferrari, Red Bull, McLaren, Mercedes, Williams and Force India.
However the word on the street is that it was a ‘constructive’ meeting, and that more information on what was discussed will be revealed to the world on Friday.
Subjects on today’s agenda included the fifth engine for 2015, as well as longer term rule changes for 2017 and beyond.
The FIA has six votes, FOM has six votes, and each of the represented teams has a vote. Ideas agreed today still have to be passed to the F1 Commission – where the other teams, race promoters and sponsors are represented – and then on to the World Motor Sport Council, whose next meeting is in Mexico on July 10.
