will be "Olympic sized" in the coming weeks.

The negotiations would also involve the teams, Bernie Ecclestone and the FIA, and another consideration is the expiring Concorde

"It would be an Olympic-sized negotiation," Williams told Bloomberg in London. "I would pay a lot of money just to listen," he

added.
