A1 to limit cars operated by team

Standard racing teams will only be able to operate a maximum of two national entries in the 2006/07 A1 Grand Prix season, according to this week's Autosport.
The organisers have informed the teams of the new rule, although it has yet to be officially announced. The idea is to prevent one organisation from stealing a march on the opposition over a race weekend because it has access to data from multiple cars.
The decision only affects the DAMS squad, which ran cars for France, Switzerland Mexico and briefly, Russia last season. It is know, however, that some teams have been looking at expanding their complement of cars beyond two.
DAMS boss Jean-Paul Driot said: "I don't think this will change anything. Sometimes you can have too much information, but if you have the right drivers in the right team you will perform."
