Maffei additionally insists that “huge progress” has been made in the direction of finalising a brand new Concorde Settlement that may begin in 2021.
Each side have been working in the direction of a brand new Concorde for some months, though the method of tying down the long run business preparations, governance and the technical and sporting rules in parallel is a fancy one.
“I think that huge progress has been made,” Maffei informed the viewers at a media and communications convention in New York. “Positive there are points to be debated. F1 has talked about placing price caps in for 15 years or extra, and once we first began out, Chase [Carey] and his workforce, about placing a price cap in F1, individuals scoffed.
