FIA no longer mentioning cost cap

F1's governing body has toned down its rhetoric on cost-cutting, having said in December it wanted to install a highly-controversial "global cost cap".

But on Thursday, after a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council in Geneva, the FIA said only that the adoption of "cost reduction and cost control regulations" has been agreed, following a meeting involving Bernie Ecclestone and the F1 teams.

The FIA said the cost control regulations will be installed in 2015.
