F1 meets to discuss 2017 plans on Friday

F1’s future continued to take shape on Friday.

In a meeting room at London’s Heathrow airport, representatives of the teams, FOM and the FIA got together to discuss – among other things – the new rules for 2017.

It is the penultimate meeting before the March 1 deadline, coming shortly after it emerged that Pirelli and Mercedes had pushed to dilute the radical plans for cars that would be up to 6 seconds per lap quicker.

The earlier, radical chassis plan had been devised by Red Bull.

“Our concept is still on the table,” Dr Helmut Marko insisted to Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport. “It could still be that the proposals are adopted.”

Some teams, however – like Williams – would reportedly prefer that the 2017 revolution is simply delayed altogether until 2018, so that the sport can more carefully step into its future.

Force India’s technical boss Andy Green agrees: “There is now quite a lot of pressure to come to the right approach over two meetings of six hours.”
