FIA considering new team selection for 2011

Bahrain International Circuit, Sakhir, Bahrain, Thursday, 11 March 2010

The World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) met in Bahrain on Thursday and agreed a number of matters in relation to the FIA Formula One World Championship. Among them were a new selection process for a potential 13th team next season and the appointment of Mercedes GP’s Michael Schumacher to the FIA’s Circuits Commission.

Full statement from the WMSC:
With regard to the USF1 team’s non-participation in the 2010 championship, the World Council mandated the FIA President, in full compliance with the new code of practice for disciplinary matters, to take forward the most appropriate action.

The World Council approved the initiation of a new selection process for a potential 13th entry (and reserve entry) to the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Based on his previous Formula One test mileage and his participation in the GP2 Championship, the World Council has approved the granting of a super licence to Karun Chandhok.

Subject to final approval of the calendar by the World Council, Mr Bernie Ecclestone, President of FOM, has informed the FIA that India will host a Formula One event in 2011.

Michael Schumacher has been appointed as Drivers’ Representative for the Circuits Commission.

They need to let everyone run with their own budget, if they can make it or not it's their problem. That's one reason why I don't like MLS either!
