Today is the 27th May and this is your daily dose of F1Minute.
The Formula One Teams’ Association met today in London to discuss their next step in the battle against the 2010 regulations. One of the only things we have learnt from that meeting is that Williams have been suspended from FOTA temporarily.
Williams put out a statement saying: “FOTA’s decision, although regrettable, is understandable. However, as a racing team and a company whose only business is Formula One, with obligations to our partners and our employees, submitting our entry to next year’s Championship was unquestionable.” There has been no other official word on this, so we’ll await reaction from the rest of the group later in the week.
Meanwhile, on the subject of Williams, Patrick Head has suggested that the team may not be so keen on KERS as they were initially, mostly because of the weight distribution. It was due to appear on the car in Turkey, but might be delayed.
That’s it for today, I’ll be back tomorrow for another F1Minute.
