Some teams to attend the FIA meeting?
There are indications that one or more of the F1 teams may attend the FIA meeting on Friday to discuss the federation's plans for 2008 and beyond. Ferrari, of course, will be in attendance but there seems to be a possibility that one or two of the other teams might also turn up in order to maintain their position as neutral in the current dispute. This does not mean that they are switching sides although no doubt that will be the conclusion drawn by those who are keen to promote the idea that the union of the nine teams is flaky. Our understanding is that Red Bull Racing is probably one of the teams and Jordan may be the other. Significantly, Jordan's new owner Alex Shnaider made an appearance at the meeting of the teams and manufacturers last week, having decided to take a look to see the lay of the land.
The FIA last week circulated a letter saying that four teams had asked for items to be on the agenda. It is not clear whether these requests relate the meeting itself or whether they were items which had been requested by teams in relation to other issues, which have been added to the agenda.
