Ross Brown FOTA has not lost relevance
At the end of last year, after unsuccessful negotiations on a new Agreement on the limitation of resources, the team Red Bull Racing, Toro Rosso-Ferrari and Sauber announced the release of FOTA. There was danger of the dissolution of the association, but the head of the Mercedes AMG Petronas Ross Brown believes that the work of the organization is not limited to the search for ways to reduce costs, and disappointed by the lack of unity among the teams.
Ross Brown "We reiterate our devotion to the FOTA and regret that several of the teams came out of the association. Before the crisis and pressure from the outside do FOTA more cohesive, and now, in the absence of external pressure, the natural resistance of us divided.
I think that it would be short-sighted to believe that FOTA no longer valid. The Problem of Formula 1 in the fact that we are very difficult to work together. I believe the association of teams and disappointed with the events of the last few months. It seems to me, we should pity about it, because one of the objectives of FOTA was the search for optimal decisions for the future of Formula 1, and not a single command.
We must find a way to limit costs, and in this situation it is very important the concept of the Agreement on the limitation of resources, but to find the best solution, it is necessary to unity and working together. We adhere to this strategy and will ensure the proper performance of the terms of the Agreement, which shall become part of the future of Formula 1, because without it, the commands are subject to greater risk."
