FIA developments since the last approval rating
The first announcement from the FIA in February was a series of new rules for 2010.
This included the approval of the new scoring system, changes to race penalties and, most controversially, a rule forcing drivers who qualify in the top ten to start the race on the same set of tyres they set their fastest lap time on.
The non-appearance of US F1 and Campos (now HRT) at February testing was bad news for the FIA’s plan to bring new teams into the sport. US F1 requested to be allowed to miss some races, but the FIA wasn’t having any of it.
Yesterday the FIA finally published the list of F1 teams and drivers for 2010. US F1’s name is missing from the list and so is that of Stefan GP, who lobbied to take their place but weren’t given the place.
The FIA pointed out that “it is not possible for a replacement team to be entered for the Championship at this late stage.”
