Just before last week's meeting of the World Motor Sport Council in Paris, it emerged that proposals to allow big teams to sell full cars to their smaller F1 rivals had been talked down at the recent Canadian Grand Prix.

But Italy's Autosprint is reporting that the FIA "discussed the possibility" of allowing customer cars during last Friday's Paris meeting.

The news follows the Jean Todt-led FIA's confirmation that it is having "active discussions" about cost-cutting at the request of the teams.

F1's governing body added that "any amendments to the technical regulations resulting from a further limit on expenditure on the chassis" must be decided before the end of June.

"The intention is to help all teams participate in the championship in a fair and equal manner."
