Race stewards could be handed the role of technical delegate if the FIA
emerges successfully from discussions with team principles this week.

Debate on the subject has raged ever since McLaren's braking system was
declared illegal by the Brazilian race stewards, contrary to the pre-season
opinion voiced by current technical delegate Charlie Whiting. Now the
governing body and the team owners will meet to discuss which of the
parties should be removed from the decision making process.

The FIA is thought likely to recommend that race stewards be handed the
responsibility for approving technical innovations, but this is believed to
be against the wishes of some teams who may travel to events with expensive
new developments only to have them outlawed.
