Bernie Ecclestone has hit out at suggestions that F1 team will try to negotiate changes to the proposed calendar for the 2012 season, which was revealed to them in Hungary at the weekend.
Concerns have been raised about a run of seven 'flyaway' races scheduled for the final ten weeks of the season, which include a series of back-to-back events.
That schedule is seen to be something of a logistical nightmare for teams with FOTA chairman Martin Whitmarsh telling the Press Association
that he expected changes to be made.
"The calendar is tough," he said. "But I understand it's going to change again, so until you have the final one there is no point complaining about the provisional one."
However, Ecclestone insists that it won't be down to the team's to make the final decision as to how the calendar will appear next year with him having the final say.
"It is not the teams who make the calendar, it's me," he told the German news agency SID
. "They cannot come to me now with their proposals. It's my decision. If someone's going to do something, it's going to be me."
