and now FIA defer points system


Only after a couple of days of introducing a new points system, FIA backtracks on the winner takes all points rule. Apparently FOTA were against the rule and FIA have to back down for another year.

The whole episode shows that Max Mosley and Bernie Ecclestone are working together to undermine FOTA at every opportune moment. Even after postponing the point system Ecclestone remains adamant to introduce the system in 2010.

“It’s logic – you go to the athletics and you look at the 100 metres, you’re not looking at the guy that’s second, you’re looking at the winner,” said Ecclestone. “In most sports people are looking at winners.

On the other side FOTA is happy that the unity among teams is not a lost cause. Renault boss Flavio Briatore is happy with the FOTA’s unity.

“What has happened demonstrated that if the teams are together, their voice can count,” said Briatore
