Oct.9 (GMM) Max Mosley on Wednesday met with his Ferrari counterpart and F1 teams’ alliance FOTA chairman Luca di Montezemolo in Nice, France
The FIA president will reprise the meeting after this month’s Chinese grand prix with the entire FOTA contingent, to discuss the “urgent” need for “very significant” cost cuts
Crucially, Mosley seems to have won the full backing of F1’s chief executive Bernie Ecclestone, who told The Times newspaper that he also wants to see teams use a standard engine in 2010
“The thing I am most excited about is pushing and pushing and pushing the homologated engine idea,” the Briton said
The idea is that F1’s manufacturers build their own engines according to a common design, with only one scheduled change per driver allowed each season
