Team meeting now on...
The other issues which will come under discussion are how best to solve the current problem with the automobile manufacturers, who are threatening to start their own series and so disrupting sponsorship negotiations.
There are also questions over what the best rules are for the future and there will, no doubt, be discussions about FIA President Max Mosley's proposals which would introduce a manufacturers' championship, to encourage the carmakers to supply more than one team; to allow chassis technology to be sold and to reduce testing by offering teams an incentive at races if they do not test.
The aim of the meeting is to come away with proposals for the World Motor Sport Council to consider at its meeting in Paris next week. If there is no agreement between the teams there would then need to be a Formula 1 Commission meeting to vote through items between now and the World Council in two weeks from now. The F1 Commission could meet at the Nurburgring if necessary.
