Harmony restored in Formula One
The cloud that had been hanging over the future of Formula One has now lifted. At a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council in Paris on Wednesday, FIA and FOTA came to a mutually satisfactory agreement. In a press release, the FIA announced that there would be no rival race series and that the rules for the 2010 season would be based on those applying in 2009, together with the changes that had been decided on prior to 29th April 2009. After reaching accord on cost cutting measures in the sport and the announcement that Max Mosley would not be seeking re-election as FIA President in October, the governing body confirmed the 13-strong line-up for the 2010 season. Stepping up to join the current ten contenders in the top echelon of motor racing are newcomers Campos Meta, Manor Grand Prix and Team US F1.
