GP Week : Issue 45
> F1NEWS> e balance unhappy with the two tier system for the sport, which has drawn criticism from almost every Formula 1 team and a number of drivers, including 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen who says that he wouldn’t want to race in such a championship. The FIA, however, is believed to be willing to work with the teams to find a solution and FOTA President Luca di Montezemolo and FIA President Max Mosley are thought likely to discuss the issue further before Teams set to boycott 2010 entry over two-tier budget cap proposal the Monaco Grand Prix, in order to avoid any potentially embarrassing public show of force by FOTA at the biggest race of the season. Any negotiations must be made soon however. With the deadline looming for entries there is little time for real solutions to be found. The FIA has already conducted a feasibility study into standard engines across 11 global championships, and is seemingly preparing itself for the potential of life without the major manufacturers in Formula 1. At the same time, it is not long since the manufacturers themselves were threatening to form a breakaway series if Formula 1 continued to follow a path with which they were unhappy. The next few weeks will be critical not only for how the 2010 Formula 1 grid looks, but for the very fabric and existence of Formula 1 as we know it.
