What you think about FOTA regulations and restrictions. In my opinion all teams want Resource Restriction Agreement (RRA) or Cost control policy. Now three teams confirmed FOTA exit Ferrari, Red Bull and Sauber. I think it will be effect mid and back runners. If all team decide terminate FOTA, FIA should introduce cost control policy.

Do F1 teams need the FIA?
Do F1 teams need the FOM (Bernie)?

WTF are you trying to ask? The topic is titled 'F1 teams need FOTA?' and the poll 'F1 needs Resource Restriction Agreement?'

The two are not the same thing, FOTA has wider score than RRA.

It was near end before. That's why FOM agreed with the formation of FOTA.

I know FOTA and RRA different thing.

Recent rows over F1's Resource Restriction Agreement have dominated FOTA's agenda, Ferrari insists that it is keen to ensure a deal is still reached to limit costs.

Autosport reveal the statement - Ferrari will continue to work with the other teams to make the current RRA, Resource Restriction Agreement, aimed at controlling costs, more effective and efficient, modifying it to make it more stringent in key areas such as aerodynamics, to rebalance some aspects such as testing and to expand it to areas currently not covered such as engines.

Very good advice. Before starting threads, especially with a Poll attached, be clear, precise and think about what is the main objective.

Site seems to be not updates; last issue in Sep?

FOTA in my view could be useful contributor to the sport. Who would be foolish enough to reject input from people who live on the front line, and investing millions of Euros? One would have to have rotting feudal and twisted mind to think that FOTA is useless. Unfortunately, in my view, recent events are regretable, and shortsighted. I am not a "union" man; never been one, and never will be one, but here is the difference - this is not a union shop. Who is or will be defending team's interests, if they are not in the room? About them without them?

Current FOTA organizational structure is a failure under impotent, incompetent and more or less absent leadership.

Does anyone understand purpose of FOTA? Norbert Haug is known to speak about benefits for peers working together on important common issues, yet recent backstabbing under Whitmarsh's watch I thought spells end of FOTA. What else is there for them to talk about, if front teams cannot be trusted, and everyone for himself rule prevails?

Directly addressing the topic. Please understand I'm on the opposite side of the world.

FOTA needs F1 teams.
Little surer.
