The decision over whether the World Rally Championship's Jordan Rally should be called off due to the situation in Syria could be postponed until after this weekend's Rally of Portugal.
No decision has come out of tonight's meeting between the World Rally Championship teams and the FIA to discuss transportation to next month's Jordan event.
The teams are unhappy about travelling through the political unrest in Syria to get to the Dead Sea rally on 15-17 April and Citroen's team principal Olivier Quesnel has called on the sport's governing body to cancel the next round of the WRC. The Jordan Rally itself will run as it a round of the FIA Middle East Rally Championship as well as the WRC and the local competitors will not face the same travel issues that are worrying WRC teams.
There has been no formal comment from the meeting in Faro, Portugal tonight and it is thought a decision may not be taken before the end of the weekend - despite WRC Commission president Jarmo Mahonen hoping for a verdict in the next two days.
Earlier this evening, Quesnel told AUTOSPORT he felt it would be inappropriate for the rally to go ahead.
"For myself, I think to go through countries where there is such big problems... it's not the fact that it's dangerous - I don't think we should go to play cars while they have their big problems, it is insensitive and not right morally. They [the FIA] can decide very soon, they just have to say it's finished."
