Formula 1′s bid to get 2014′s regulations nailed down has been left in a state of limbo by the lack of a Concorde Agreement. After years when the governance structure was laid out clearly by the famous tripartite agreement between the teams, the FIA and the commercial rights holder, F1 is currently without any such deal in place, or an accord to carry on operating under the terms of the previous one as has happened before. It means the former structure of rules getting debated and approved in Technical and Sporting Working Groups, ratified by the Formula 1 Commission and then rubber-stamped by the FIA’s World Council, is no more.

Caterham team principal Cyril Abiteboul believes Formula 1 must consider easing the criteria that teams have to meet in order to qualify as a constructor. The designated ‘listed parts’ that teams must produce themselves to qualify as a constructor have, for the first time, been published in the public domain in this year’s Sporting Regulations . The list exists to prevent full-blown customer cars from being used, but Abiteboul believes parts that are not significant performance differentiators should not be on the list

Formula 1 needs to reduce its costs by one-third by the end of 2015 if the sport is not to lose a number of teams. That is the view of FIA president Jean Todt, who thinks that a drive to reduce expenditure that was begun by his predecessor Max Mosley needs to continue. “Costs are my main objective, because they must be lowered by a further 30 per cent in the next three years, otherwise we’ll lose several teams,” Todt said in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport .

Formula 1 teams and the sport’s commercial rights holder Bernie Ecclestone must ensure that the FIA is part of the Concorde Agreement when it is put in place for the start of next year.

But in a statement issued in Monaco on Thursday, Mercedes-Benz motorsport boss Norbert Haug hinted that progress was being made that could lead to an agreement

Ross Brawn thinks that the key to a successful flotation of Formula 1 still depends on the future role of the FIA. F1 owners CVC have sold a $1.6 billion stake ahead of a planned $3 billion IPO, and Brawn believes the future path for the sport is not as clear cut as some are making out
