Formula 1 team principals have postponed a meeting planned for this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to discuss the future of the Resource Restriction Agreement (RRA).
Discussions had been penciled in by the Formula One Teams' Association (FOTA) for the Yas Marina weekend to try and end disagreements about the RRA, amid fears that if no consensus can be reached then it could threaten the future of the teams' body. However, due to logistical reasons, the meeting has had to be delayed, with no firm new date having yet been agreed. It is hoped, however, that the get-together can still take place before the end of the season.
With FOTA's future at stake, numerous team principals had this week moved to rally behind the organization, claiming it has an important role to play in the future of the sport.
Mercedes GP team principal Ross Brawn said: "You can't forget why FOTA came into existence. Faced with those circumstances again, we need FOTA. And, in some ways, we are going to have that situation again, because we are about to negotiate a new Concorde Agreement.
