“This agreement will only make F1 designers stronger than collectively in the long run. On January 19, 2005, Ferrari announced that it had signed an extension of the previous contract, which expires on December 31, 2012. [4] On July 18, 2005, Red Bull also signed an extension[5] and Jordan/Midland two days later. [6] On December 7, 2005, Williams was the fourth team to sign a contract extension. [7] The agreement is intended to ensure a more equitable distribution of prize money. The challenges posed by the virus served as an additional reminder that something had to change, that is, as soon as the championship resumed, the trade agreement was also able to discuss. Such an agreement, at present, speculation that some teams, like Mercedes, could not stay upright. On August 18, 2020, Ferrari, McLaren and Williams announced that they had signed the new Concorde contract,[21][21] while the following day, Formula 1 announced that the other teams had also signed the contract. [23] The new agreement, which was the first to be concluded under the new owner Liberty Media, is valid for seasons 2021 to 2025 and will come into effect on January 1, 2021. Announcing the new document, McLaren CEO Zak Brown said: “With the new agreement, Formula 1 has taken another important step towards a sustainable and strong future. It`s the right deal at the right time for the sport, its owners, its teams and especially the fans. In 1995, the FIA decided to transfer the commercial rights from Formula 1 to the Formula 1 administration for 14 years. In exchange, Ecclestone would make an annual payment.

McLaren, Williams and Tyrrell protested by rejecting the proposed Concorde Agreement (negotiations for which it began in 1993). Ken Tyrrell, in particular, was outraged that Ecclestone, as president of OFZL, negotiated the transfer of the organization`s rights to his own company. Tyrrell also objected to the agreement`s endorsement being kept secret and argued that the secrecy of the agreement would only benefit Ecclestone (by weakening the bargaining power of the other parties). On July 29, 2008, the ten participating teams created the Formula One Teams Association (FOTA) to negotiate the terms of the contract. After a dispute between FOTA and the FIA in the first half of 2009, Mosley and all the teams signed a new Concorde contract, although Sauber, who was the majority owner of BMW in transition, had announced shortly before his retirement from the sport at the end of the season, so was waiting for a control of the team to be returned to Peter Sauber before signing. The new agreement provides for the continuation of the terms of the 1998 agreement and will continue until 31 December 2012. At the same meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council, a resource limitation programme was agreed, as well as a series of revised sports and technical rules for the 2010 season. [11] Disagreements between the two organizations, known as fiSA-FOCA, resulted in the cancellation of several races.
