The situation around the disputes between the owners of Formula 1 and the leadership of Ferrari has taken a new turn. In recent months, as you know, Ferrari threatened to withdraw from the championship on the background of discontent of the upcoming reforms in the championship. And if in Maranello expected to receive support from the FIA in this conflict, it seems, was wrong.
Speaking on Tuesday at a press briefing at the Royal automobile club of great Britain, the FIA President Jean Todt has clarified his position and made it clear that F1 needs to change, including in terms of costs and distribution of prize money.
Ross Brawn: Ferrari’s very important for Formula 1
“Any team is important for Formula 1. Ferrari may leave the choice for them. No one holds, – quotes the Todt RaceFans. – Obviously, I worked for many years in Maranello. For me, this brand always was a cult, with ten years, I admired Ferrari. I believe in the tradition and understand the significance of Ferrari. They have achieved great successes not only in Formula 1 but also sports cars in the race.
Of course, I hope they don’t leave the championship. But it can always happen. As history shows, the big players leave and come back. That is why we want to cut costs. Even a company like Ferrari should not spend so much money. Needs to be some balance and profitability of your business.

There are currently six or seven F1 teams face financial problems. It is unacceptable that in the leading racing championship 60-70% of the participants were fighting for survival.”
