No problem for Australia
The problem can be traced back to the accident in 2001 which resulted in the death of a trackside marshal. The coroner's report into the accident suggested that the crash had been "avoidable" and this created a series of other problems, notably with the issue of insurance. The Australian authorities have been working quietly to solve the problem and the FIA World Council was obviously satisfied with what they have achieved.
