An unsuccessful team applicant for 2010 has filed a complaint against F1's governing body with the European Commission.

Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper said the Serbian company AMCO, after trying to obtain one of the three 2010 vacancies for 'Stefan Grand Prix', alleges that the FIA's unofficial requirement that new teams sign engine deals with Cosworth broke anti-competition laws.

The report said an EC investigation is now possible.

Fronted by chief executive Zoran Stefanovic, the AMCO complaint seeks an annulment of the team selection process, which saw the Cosworth-powered Manor, USF1 and Campos outfits granted entries for 2010.
