Richard, glad to be the first to put your mind at rest hope you sleep well tonight.
No, legally the concord agreement has not been signed as the FIA is not a done deal yet.
What has been signed is a financial agreement with the teams.
Please note that Lauda was at the meeting representing Mercedes, (see my last comments on the Brawn page).

Thanks god that we have extraordinary drivers that makes Formula 1 still beautiful to watch, because I am quite annoyed with this politics. Ecclestone said the they don't need Concorde Agreement, I am saying that F1 doesn't need Ecclestone at all.

Rob01 seems close to the money on this one. It looks like Bernie, in customary Bernie fashion, is trying to get some leverage in his negotiations with the FIA by saying that he doesn't need them at all. I would be surprised if the commercial terms already agreed with the teams did not implicitly, if not expressly, require F1 racing to be conducted under the auspices of the FIA, so I think this is probably some negotiating hot hair from the Master of Negotiations.

Jean Todd is the one next lined up for that proverbial “kickupthebackside”, but whichever way things go the FIA will still have to sanction and police the racing and that's a powerful card to play with, it puts the FIA in a position to Easley upset/destabilise his applecart.
