Lotus Renault team principal Eric Boullier has called on F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone to give the teams a greater share of the sports income.
Speaking in an interview with France's Auto Hebdo
magazine, Boullier stated that the current situation is not sustainable: “F1 is the only sport where the owner of the commercial rights gets 50 percent and leaves its participants with the task of finding their own source of income,” he explained.
Meanwhile, ex-FIA president Max Mosley added that he is looking forward to seeing what happens over the coming months as a new Concorde Agreement is thrashed out between the teams and Ecclestone.
“The question is whether the teams will still be as united when Bernie lures one or two of them with a special offer,” Mosley remarked in an interview with Germany's Auto Motor und Sport
. “It will be fun to watch from the outside for a change.
"If I was Bernie, I would offer to distribute the revenue equally to all the teams except the top four. The top four can threaten to have their own championship but it would not work.
“When they come back to Bernie and the FIA, they could both say: 'You are welcome, but there is no money left over for you.'
“The approach would bring the small teams a little bit closer to the big ones,” Mosley summed-up.
