FIA Unveils Schedule for 2008 Rules

The first draft of Formula One's regulations for 2008 will be finalised at the end of next month, the sport's ruling body said on Friday

The FIA, after meeting with representatives from the Ferrari, Red Bull, and Jordan teams today, said the draft will be circulated on 1st July to all the main stakeholders in Formula One.

"Following the consultation meetings held for the team principals and FOM on 28 January and 15 April, the first draft of the 2008 Formula One Technical Regulations will be finalised no later than 27 May for inclusion in the dossier for the World Motor Sport Council to be held on 29 June," it said in a statement.

The FIA said stakeholders - which include Formula One Management, race organisers, race promoters, current drivers, potentially competing teams, and potential engine and tyre suppliers - would be then invited to submit comments until the end of July.

"These comments will be considered by the FIA in consultation with all stakeholders who confirm their commitment to the 2008 FIA Formula One World Championship," the statement added.

"A final draft will then be prepared, taking into account all comments received.  This must be ready no later than 23 September for inclusion in the dossier for the World Motor Sport Council meeting to be held on 26 October.

"The final version approved by the WMSC will then be submitted to the FIA General Assembly in Rome on 28 October."

Only three teams attended the meeting with the FIA after the rest agreed last week not to go to Paris.
