At the beginning of 2005 the FIA initiated a consultation on the future of Formula One. A timetable for the consultation has since been published with an open invitation to all of the stakeholders to participate.

The FIA has always considered the fans of Formula One to be an essential part of this process. As a result, the FIA, backed by AMD, a global technology leader, is launching a new survey to gauge public opinion and to help shape the future of the sport.

The FIA/AMD Formula One Survey 2005 can be accessed via www.fia.com and will be online from Saturday, May 21.

The results of the survey will be published on the FIA and AMD web sites and in the August edition of F1 Racing magazine.

Max Mosley, FIA President said,

"We have been saying for some time that Formula One fans should be consulted and involved in shaping the future of the sport. I am delighted that with AMD's support, we now have the opportunity to conduct this research for the first time.

"I very much look forward to the results and I would encourage everyone interested in Formula One to participate."

"As the sport of Formula One racing has become more technologically advanced, technology sponsors have become more important to the success of individual racing teams and to the sport as a whole," said Henri Richard, executive vice president and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, AMD.

"The FIA/AMD Formula One Survey provides the FIA and AMD a unique partnership opportunity to help improve the sport by getting direct input from the sport's fans around the world. We are excited to be working with the FIA to improve F1 racing and we look forward to more opportunities in the future."
