What is the GPMA up to?

The Grand Prix Manufacturers' Association is saying nothing about the latest ideas which have put into the public domain by FIA President Max Mosley. What is perhaps more interesting is the fact that none of the team principals involved have made any public statements about the proposals, particularly the idea that entries for the 2008 season will open and close within the next three months.

The unusual silence in all these matters suggests that there are other things more important being discussed at the moment and we hear that the silence may be because the manufacturers are close to a commercial deal with CVC Capital Partners, the new owners of the Formula One group, the commercial rights holder of Formula 1. If such a deal were to go through it would leave the FIA in a very uncomfortable position as it could then appear to be the only thing standing in the way of long-term stability for the sport.
