How can FIA do this?????

Even if the testing proposal is rejected at the F1 Commission meeting scheduled for next month, Todt indicated in Turkey that he would push through the regulations for 2013 instead which will not need the approval of teams.

"I would have loved to have done it in 2011, but we could not impose it as there was no reason to impose it on safety grounds," said Todt.

So, it will be in 2012 if we get enough support. It is something that we are going to present at the next Formula 1 Commission which will be on the Thursday in Valencia, and if not then, we can implement it in 2013 without any agreement.
