So at least one person high up in F1 is listening.... good to know.

He also said....'Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo has called for a Formula 1 team summit to be held at Maranello next month, amid fears over the future of the sport.'

This is a fantastic and novel idea.... wish someone had thought of it sooner. I propose they do this more often and in fact name the group like... oh I don't know... off the top of my head...maybe... FOTA.. for F Off Troll A-hole

next year could be great anyway, what with the tech changes. They shouldhave at least waited to see the outcone of the new era before making (i'll be polite) 'extra' changes. Imagine if next year is the best season for 30 years, and the wobbly points ruin it right at the end.....

On the tread of the points change I said that everybody (all eighteen votes) voted for the points change and that includes the six teams.
It now looks like the eighteen votes system was devised by MR F1 and that includes the new points system, the system was intended to “I will vote yes for yours as long as you will vote yes for mine”.
It's also now clear that the points change has the trade mark of MR F1.
This calling for a “summit of all F1 teams” is not new in fact it is the second call and for the second time by FERRARI, remember the teams stand against MM and his budget gap? I don't think that FERRARI will let MR F1 take down F1 with him as his end might be very near.

The news of the double points and the FIA's intended budget cap came out a while ago ...
If it's taken Luca this long to comment, he's not just making a call for a summit on F1 ... he's already some way down the road to having it & has commitment from some key people already.

richard: if luca really thinks it a bad idea, why does he not use his power of veto?

I believe that that Ferrari's veto power is/was for technical regulations not sporting rules.

to be honest it hasn't changed that much 1 race at the end of the season to "spice" things up that is all(as points are concerned). sure enough march cant come round quick enough now can't wait to see who's where!
