The Formula One Teams Association
There was a time when the number of accounts of the goings-on within a team principals' meeting were in direct proportion to the number of attendees. And, in times of ultra-high politicking, there were not infrequently more versions being bandied around than team bosses had attended.
However, a remarkable veil of silence would appear to have settled since last week's meeting in Maranello, during which the idea of forming a team trade union was mooted and had, according to three totally unrelated sources, Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo proposed as the first of the body's annually rotating chairmen by none other than former sworn enemy Ron Dennis.
As of Sunday in Hungary, no definite decision had been taken as to the exact name of this trade union, although all present seemed agreed that the words 'formula', 'one' - in either Arabic or digit form - 'teams' and 'association' should appear in the title.
