Williams suspended from FOTA

On Monday, Williams broke ranks with the other Formula 1 teams and put in an entry for the 2010 season. In retaliation FOTA have temporarily suspended Williams.

“FOTA’s decision, although regrettable, is understandable,” says Sir Frank Williams. “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.

In addition, we are legally obliged under our contract with FOM and the FIA to participate in the World Championship until the end of 2012.”

FOTA discussions concern the longer term issues which affect all the teams and Williams suspension is a sign that the association would like to stand united and actions of those who will break rank will not be tolerated.
