FIA plans to reduce superlicence fee

d08brn2533The FIA plans to reduce the cost of the drivers’ F1 superlicences in 2010.

Formula One’s governing body increased the fees this year prompting anger from the drivers who complained about the lack of consultation.

But following a meeting between FIA President Max Mosley and the Grand Prix Drivers Association (GPDA) today, the FIA confirmed that they would seek to reduce the cost in 2010.

“Following a very positive meeting between FIA President Max Mosley and representatives of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association (GPDA), a proposal will be made to the World Motor Sport Council to revise superlicence fees for drivers in the 2010 championship,” said the FIA in a statement.

“A reduced fee would reflect the major cost reductions that will be brought into the sport for next season.

“A number of other issues were discussed and the FIA has agreed to meet representatives of the GPDA on a regular basis to maintain what promises to be a constructive dialogue.”
