Domenicali: “An automatic entry is not valid”

These are hot days and not just in the meteorological sense, for Formula 1. A FOTA meeting took place today in London, attended on behalf of Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro by its Team Principal, Stefano Domenicali.

Amongst the many rumours flying around at the moment, there was talk that the FIA intended to include Ferrari as a so-called automatic entry in the list of teams which will take part in the Formula 1 World Championship as of next year. Domenicali’s reaction to this was very clear: “Ferrari’s position has not changed. Back on 29 May, 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.”
