Well, folks, it looks like that elusive peace is slipping away yet again as the members of the Formula One Teams Association reportedly up and walked out of a meeting today with technical representatives from the FIA.
The meeting of the Technical Working Group was convened to iron out the details of the regulation changes for the near future, and included the ten current teams – of which eight are members of FOTA – as well as the three new teams joining the grid for next year. As of this writing, FOTA has yet to explain its specific reasons for the walkout. However, their exit indicates that the supposed deal between FOTA and the FIA is anything but finalized after Max Mosley (who reportedly agreed to stand down as FIA president as part of the deal) said he may yet run again – and Bernie Ecclestone continues to give the sport a black eye.
