Trouble on the horizon?
The argument, we hear, is that the FIAÊInternational Sporting Code states that teams should "be acquainted with the statutes and regulations of the FIA, this Code and the national regulations" and that they should "undertake to submit themselves without reserve to the above". The penalty for breaking this rule is that the team in question "will have the licence which has been issued to them withdrawn, and any manufacturer shall be excluded from the FIA Championships on a temporary or permanent basis".
It will interesting to see how the federation will react to this accusation.
