Jean Todt, president of the FIA, confirmed the information from the World Motor Sport Council, which was held on Thursday in Bahrain. “ In a few days, we will put in place a call for tenders for the 13th available place, as well as for a 14th team in reserve for the 2011 season. », Confided the former boss of the Team this Friday.

Last year, the FIA ​​did the same, with many teams applying to join the F1. However, Max Mosley wanted to put in place technical advantages for new teams, while imposing a budgetary cap on all teams, even existing ones. The success of the applications then contrasted with the disappointment of the lucky ones (USF1, which finally threw in the towel, Virgin Racing, Lotus Racing, Hispania Racing Team) when their technical advantages and the budgetary ceiling were abandoned.
