Mosley still believes in F1 budget cap

Todt, meanwhile, has said that he does not intend to adopt a dictatorial style of leadership, although he admits that the teams needed to come up with some radical ideas when it came to controlling their spending, despite being the architect of the new-for-2014 engine regulations which will cause the teams to incur greater expenditure.

“For me, the FIA must have a bigger impact, not erosion,” he told the Financial Times on the eve of a major meeting between the teams, FIA and FOM designed to thrash out details of the new Concorde Agreement, “I'm not a dictator trying to control, [but] it makes me smile when I read that we are going to lose control. I will never allow things which are under our responsibility to be dealt with by anybody else.

“Sometimes [adapting to a changing world] is a downside of F1. People live in their little environment, in their little kingdom, and they don't see what is happening. But the world is changing . We must be ambassadors of the sport, ambassadors of the industry. Is it correct to use 80 or 90 litres for 100km? I don't think it's correct. I will expect more drastic proposals to reduce the costs."

Still thinks he could have whipped the teams into shape after getting the budget cap proposals tied down. There would have been a lot of pain involved forcing the proposals through although I'm sure they could have a cup of tea and discuss it when the meeting was over.

If they could implement a law in which no team could gett payed for a seat and that all drivers should have a salary it would be a huge step forward. The problem is the costs are out of hand and the drivers coming in are not the best available but the ones who can pay to cover the costs. Ban that and start reverse engineering this madness from that point.
