No matter what they say, being head of FOTA will always detract some attention from their team job. Given their team job is team principal, that has an effect on the team.

The FOTA position should definitely circulate with all members HAVING to assume the position at some stage.

They are building a super team to get the best Concorde agreement. This is everything to do with gaining power in F1. This will be the most important Concorde Agreement in modern times.

Rob01, they get voted to the top positions, but they have to offer themselves first. If someone never offers, they will never be voted to the top positions. All I am saying is that if you accept that holding a top FOTA position is detrimental to your day job, is it fair that some team principals will never offer themselves? Hence what I said before, that every team principal should have to take a turn. If you don't accept the supposition, it doesn't matter.

Calvin, I somewhat agree with you. But not every driver signs up for the GPDA. Secondly, this FOTA group is going to be responsible for the new Concorde Agreement. FOTA wants to dictate the rules to the FIA and not the other way around as we currently have. Still trying to get rid of the Max era. This group is going to have a more important function with F1. more than any other FOTA type group in the history of the sport. Ferrari has already stated that if the govenance of the sport doesn't change they will leave. They are talking about the function of the FIA with F1. I.E. forcing 4cyl turbos down the teams neck.
