EU confirms F1 clearance deal
AS we reported exclusively, the European Commission has officially dropped its anti-trust investigation into Formula 1 racing.
"The parties agreed to make changes which limit the FIA to a regulatory role, so as to prevent any conflict of interests, and remove certain commercial restrictions put on circuit owners and TV broadcasters," the commission said in a statement.
The Commission said that it will continue to watch the sport to make sure the changes introduced actually work.
