Singapore Grand Prix: Friday press conference - Pt.2

I think that was my comment, actually Dieter. I don't think anybody else made that. My view is that the teams can't agree what day it is, never mind be able to agree cost-cutting measures...

Q: (Dieter Rencken – The Citizen).
Tony used the words 'screwed up...'

Tony Fernandes:
Yeah, I do. I don't honestly think that if someone mentioned grown-ups etc around here, if we all sat together and agreed something, we wouldn't need anyone to police it. The reality is we can't. In my short period in F1 it's very clear, so I think someone here suggested the FIA controls that but the reality is that if 12 people in a room can't agree something, then that sounds fairly ridiculous, but going back to Claire's point, the competitive element of it leads us to this position and historically that's always been the case I suppose.

Claire Williams:
I don't necessarily actually have anything more to add to it.

Franz Tost:
For me, the FIA should not be involved in financial topics, but the FIA can come up with a regulation which helps the teams to cut the costs but then it's obviously up to the teams to spend the money.

Eric Boullier:
Nothing else to add, to be honest.
