FIA and FOM plan to submit to the teams a comprehensive draft of the World Cup rules for 2021 already at the end of March – this was discussed in Melbourne at the press conference held on Friday by Jean Todt and Chase Carey, the executive director of Formula 1.

We are talking about new regulations, technical and sports, as well as proposals for new commercial arrangements, including the transition to the principle of limiting the budgets of teams. The presentation is scheduled for March 26 in the framework of the London meeting of the Strategic Group and the Formula 1 Commission.

“We must prepare the entire package of documents. With regard to commercial and financial aspects, and this is the responsibility of Formula 1, it will be introduced cost control – this is a new initiative, – said the president of the FIA. – Will discuss the rules on the engines, which was sent to the teams a few days ago. We also have developed chassis regulations and proposals for managing the championship.

All these are different documents, we are working on everything and on March 26 we will have to discuss them with the teams. ”

Formally, the rules for 2021 must be approved 18 months before that, i.e. until the end of June.

Chase Carey at the press conference was asked about the calendar for the next season, because the contracts of a number of tracks to conduct races expire in 2019, in particular, many are concerned about the fate of the Grand Prix of Mexico, because the promoters of this popular stage did not apply for next year due to unresolved funding issues.

“We extend the contracts with the tracks every year, and now the situation is about the same,” said Carey. – Countries that would like to host the race, now more than the calendar is able to accommodate. There is no lack of willing.

In general, we have a stable relationship with promoters, however, we can expect that there will be some changes. Next year the race will be held in Vietnam for the first time, this is a city race that promises to be very interesting.

So there will be some changes, but we focus on long-term relations with promoters, and here the most important thing is to work out the terms of cooperation that both parties are satisfied with. Negotiations are continuing with Miami, but it is more difficult to organize the city race than at the stationary circuit. Nevertheless, we are very pleased with the prospects that are opening up in the United States, and we believe that our plans for the future may be largely linked with America.

As for Mexico, there is a good race going on there, and negotiations with its organizers are progressing well. Of course, there are some changes taking place in the country, but since the beginning of the year I have already met twice with various parties related to the race in Mexico City, all discussions are held behind closed doors and they will continue. In the coming months, it will be clear if we can agree on conditions that would suit everyone. ”
