Midland and Red Bull stay out of the fighting

The Midland Jordan and Red Bull Racing teams say that they are not going to be pushed into deals with either Formula One Management or the automobile manufacturers which are building an alternative series for 2008. Sauber has joined the teams committed to the new series which means that FOM currently has one team (Ferrari) signed up while the manufacturers have seven (BAR-Honda, Renault, BMW Williams, McLaren-Mercedes, Toyota, Sauber and Minardi). Midland and Red Bull are the only two teams not to make any decision.
