Domenicali says no automatic entry for Ferrari

A FOTA meeting took place today in London, attended on behalf of Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro by Stefano Domenicali. He was asked about rumours that Ferrari would be given an automatic entry in the 2010 FIA Formula 1 World Championship. He responded as follows:

"Ferrari's position has not changed. Back on May 29, we put in a conditional entry with the other teams that make up FOTA. Along with this entry, we put forward to the FIA a package of proposals which included among other elements, a significant reduction in costs. As always, we will do all we can to find a solution that is acceptable to all parties. If this is not possible, then the FIA will not be able to include Ferrari in the list of teams entered for the 2010 FIA Formula 1 World Championship."
