Formula One’s 12 teams have struck an agreement to secure the future of the sport until 2020, Bernie Ecclestone has exclusively told CNN.
The F1 CEO revealed a new eight-year deal that will bind all 12 constructors in the elite division of motorsport beyond the current “Concorde Agreement” that expires at the end of this season.
The contract outlines the terms by which teams compete in Formula One and how the lucrative prize money and television revenues on offer are divided.
Progress on the deal has been complicated by F1’s planned public offering on the Singapore stock market that could yield around $3 billion.

In March the majority of the teams had agreed in principle to tie themselves to an extension of the Concorde Agreement that was most recently signed in 2009, but doubts remained over Mercedes.
The German constructor, who have seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher in their ranks, were reported to be considering quitting the sport but during an interview in Monaco, Ecclestone said an agreement had been reached.
“Well we’ve just got people now, all the current teams, to sign up until 2020 and then I hope another 10 years after that and then forever. Everybody has agreed with it,” he told CNN World Sport anchor Amanda Davies.
“You’ll have to wait to see if Mercedes have but I’m confident everything with Mercedes will be fine,” Ecclestone added.
When asked if his concerns about Mercedes pulling out of the sport had gone he replied: “Absolutely.”
Should F1 be so unpredictable?
The Concorde Agreement is between Formula One’s governing body, the FIA, the sport’s rights holders and the Formula One Teams Association (FOTA).
High-profile teams Red Bull, for whom double world champion Sebastian Vettel drives, and iconic constructor Ferrari have recently withdrawn from FOTA, adding complications to the negotiation process.
Mercedes were said to be seeking clarification of their part in F1’s future plans, insisting on a more prominent role than offered having been a part of the sport since the 1950s.
The iconic Silver Arrow version of the Mercedes led the team to back-to-back championships in the 1950s and immortalized the car in motorsport’s history.
And they were said to be threatening to withdraw from the sport altogether but Ecclestone’s revelation signals a breakthrough in discussions and an end in sight to a saga that had threatened to rumble on through the current season.
“I appreciate and support Mercedes probably more than anyone in F1,” said Ecclestone. “But the way it was done was on results and we couldn’t falsify the results because if we did other people would complain.”
Ecclestone also suggested that reports of Formula One listing on the Singapore Stock Exchange might be premature.
“The market doesn’t look too bright after that little bit of a problem with Facebook,” said Ecclestone, referring to the social networking website’s recent public offering. “So I think they are going to wait and see.”

We have Theresa May announcing that she is going to demand a British opt-out from 133 EU regulations on law and order, but then apply to opt in again on 35 of them. We have John Cridland, head of the CBI, repeating yet again the old canard that it would be disastrous for us to think of emulating Norway and Switzerland, the two richest countries in Europe, because although they trade freely with the EU’s single market, they have no say in shaping its rules. On and on goes such grandstanding, not touching reality at any point.

The bellows opening is infested with bacteria that write CDOs and other very flimsy come-ons, or scams like Facebook that claim that ten percent of outstanding shares are a reliable indication of the value of the rest. I’m not a financial expert by any means but that is something I’d have rather not begun to understand: how the US economy can puff it’s own GDP with such flimsy vehicles of “wealth creation”. I hate the way it robs the bodies own efforts – of any consequence or value.

After the Turkish Airlines crash in 2009, Boeing began installing a spoken low-airspeed warning system in 737 airplanes. The 777 is equipped with a low-speed warning tone, but it does not feature a spoken alert. By the time a stall warning known as a “stick shaker” activated on the Asiana flight, the pilots were unable to abort the landing.
