Ferrari eager for prompt progress with Formula 1's Resource Restriction Agreement

Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali hopes that progress can be made on finalising a Resource Restriction Agreement deal with the FIA before the next Formula 1 race at Spa, as talks continue to secure cost-saving measures

Ferrari eager for prompt progress with Formula 1's Resource Restriction Agreement

AUTOSPORT understands that FIA president Jean Todt is making another push to try and get agreement from teams on a way for the RRA to be policed by the governing body.

Efforts so far have not been successful, with Red Bull and Toro Rosso both against moves to limit chassis spending while engine expenditure is effectively left free.

The FIA has already delayed the 2013 entry deadline until the end of September to try and get an RRA framework in the sporting regulations by then, and talks are expected to ramp up again after the summer break.

Domenicali said teams were awaiting final documents from the FIA on the matter, and was hopeful that something could be sorted by the Belgian Grand Prix at the beginning of September. One scenario being talked about is for the RRA to form part of an appendix to the sporting regulations.

"We are waiting," explained Domenicali. "As you know, we have done many meetings with the federation and the teams, and I think that we will receive the final document for the final approval [soon].

"I don't know what will happen during the break because some of the teams will go on holiday now and some not, so I hope to be more precise in Spa."
