“All teams expressed their support for the FIA and Formula 1 in their ongoing efforts to restructure the 2020 calendar as the global situation regarding COVID-19 develops.
“All of these commitments will be referred to the relevant governing structures for final ratification.”
Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto made it known ahead of the meeting that Ferrari would be in favour of delaying the introduction of new rules, saying that a sensible decision should be made despite promising changes being brought about with the new regulations.
“We must carefully evaluate every aspect and see if it is not really the case to think about possibly postponing the introduction of the new 2021 technical rules,” he told F1.com.
“In any case, Ferrari is ready to take responsibility for a choice that must be made in the ultimate interest of this sport, it is certainly not the time for selfishness and tactics.”
Teams also agreed to fit as many races into the remaining calendar as possible once racing resumes.
The Dutch, Spanish and Monaco Grands Prix were the latest to be postponed due to the coronavirus situation, with June’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix now the earliest F1’s 2020 season could begin.
The FIA has also brought forward the summer break to March and April from its usual August spot in order to make room for potential rescheduled rounds, and teams have agreed to be more flexible with scheduling changes in the hopes of staging as many races as possible.
It now means that three extra weekends in August are free to host races, though it could make for brutal schedules for teams, with triple and quadruple headers a possibility.
