“We will work closely with the manufacturers to ensure that the new environmentally relevant technologies that many of them are developing are made our priority” Mosely said

“We are in active discussions with the major manufacturers to ensure that, in future, research and development relevant only to F1 will be discouraged, whereas that which has relevance to road-car development will be encouraged.

“We understand that such an approach has broad support from the competing manufacturers and we will work closely with them to ensure that, in particular, the new environmentally relevant technologies that many of them are developing are made our priority.

“While aiming to achieve these goals, we will ensure that the sporting spectacle of F1 remains the same or is even improved by the new developments.”

The F1 Manufacturers’ Advisory Commission includes Volkswagen, Ford, Fiat Ferrari, Mercedes McLaren, BMW, Renault, Toyota and Honda.
