Mclaren Mercedes Away From Revolt!!!!!!!!!!

Mercedes Motorsport boss Norbert Haug is refusing to join his Formula One rivals in their stance against the FIA.

Renault yesterday joined Ferrari in threatening to withdraw from Formula One unless fundamental changes are made to the recently-announced regulations for next year.

Team boss Flavio Briatore and president Bernard Rey both denounced the FIA over their plans to introduce a £40million budget cap that would in turn result in a two-tier F1.

Yet whilst Ferrari, Toyota, Renault, Red Bull Racing and Toro Rosso - the latter two teams through owner Dietrich Mateschitz - have all voiced their opposition, Mercedes have so far remained silent.

The view is Mercedes do not want to be heard speaking against the FIA after the organisation took a lenient view on McLaren over the 'spy-gate' saga last month.

We will try to help to find a solution. All the teams are agreed that there cannot be two regulations in one series.

The FIA see their system as simple: you either choose not to accept the cap and race under the current regulations, or abide by the cap and enjoy a degree of technical freedom.

However, those cars would have a considerable performance advantage via greater engine and KERS power, as well as aerodynamic aids.

But it is Mosley's governance of the sport that has enraged so many, and the fact he unilaterally acted without consulting the teams, who also fear the way the cap would be policed.
