Concorde Agreement close
We understand that the question of the succession to Bernie Ecclestone will not be part of the Concorde Agreement but will be a completely separate agreement between all the parties involved.
Max Mosley is scheduled to make a statement to the press in Melbourne on Thursday and it is possible that this will include reference to the Concorde Agreement, although we also expect the FIA President to use the opportunity to launch an attack against the European Commission which is trying to impose its competition laws on Formula 1 racing, arguing that sport has now become a business.
The battle between the FIA and the European Commission is expected to be a messy one as it appears to have developed into a clash of personality between Karel Van Miert and Max Mosley.
