The great hope of Alonso and Sainz to win, in danger?

From Italy they assure that in February there will be a meeting to decide whether the arrival of the new generation of cars is postponed to 2023. F1 denies it.


Surely, the most repeated wish that the members of the Formula 1 World Championship made on January 1 was to be able to play a normal season after the complications that the championship encountered in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. A wish, which 13 days later, seems very far from being fulfilled.

If this Monday the championship announced that Albert Park will not be the first date in 2021 due to the health crisis that is causing COVID-19 in Australia and that the Great Circus caravan will not travel to Shanghai in mid-April for this same reason, this Tuesday 'La Gazzetta Dello Sport' reports a news item that may cause a real earthquake in the competition.

Ferrari can exercise its right of veto

According to the Milan newspaper, in the coming weeks a meeting is planned between the main leaders of Mercedes, Ferrari, Alpine, McLaren, Alpha Tauri, Williams, Red Bull, Haas, Alfa Romeo and Racing Point, the FIA and Liberty Media to vote on whether to postpone for another year, until 2023, the entry into force of the largest technical, financial and sporting swaps that are remembered in 71 years of competition history.

An important measure that would be justified by the serious damage suffered by teams based in Great Britain since the beginning of January, which have had to cease much of their activity until mid-February by order of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and the enormous expense required to develop the new generation of single-seaters.

A conference where Mattia Binotto would once again have a very prominent role, since from this medium he does not rule out that Ferrari exercises its right of veto and prevents the approval of this second extension. The high echelons of Maranello see these changes as their great opportunity to break the hegemony of Mercedes and return to the path of victory at the hands of Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc, although the sense of responsibility towards Formula 1 and the teams more small can re-impose itself on northern Italy and accept a new freeze.

F1 denies that the regulation change will be postponed at 202

"Any suggestion that the 2022 regulations will be delayed is incorrect and has not been discussed. The new regulations are designed to improve competition on the track and give our racing fans This, combined with the new financial regulations, will improve Formula 1 and create a healthier and stronger business model for the entire sport, "a World Cup spokesman responded when asked about this inquiry.

With a fixed fee of 35 million dollars (28 million euros) for each formation for having run a test of the 2020 season, another tribute of 70 million dollars (57 million euros) to be distributed among Mercedes (17 million euros ) Red Bull (13), McLaren (5), Renault (4), Ferrari (12) and Williams (4) for having at some point in history been the fastest on the track and an allocation of 539 million dollars ( 442 million euros) depending on the position each team finished in the World Cup, 97 million dollars (79 million euros) and 150 million euros (122 million euros) is the money that Alpine and Ferrari will receive this year by Liberty Media.

Profits that have been halved due to the serious economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, which has made it impossible for the public to access the stands of the circuits, although the positive note is that the differences between the accruals of large teams compared to small ones have been reduced considerably.
