The decisions taken yesterday in London by the F1 Commission have introduced a few changes to the Formula 1 regulations, which will come into effect right from the start of next season. Ferrari takes a positive view of these changes.

"Common sense has prevailed," said President Montezemolo, when informed of the decisions while on a trip to the Middle East. "I am happy about the way the teams worked together, in a good spirit and in harmony," said the Managing Director of the Gestione Sportiva, Jean Todt. "It is a positive step in light of the forthcoming meeting of the F1 Technical Working Group on 4th December."

"I am particularly pleased about the changes affecting qualifying, as it will make Fridays more interesting, as we will immediately be able to see what the pecking order is. It should also produce different grids to the norm, which will contribute to improving the show."

Michael Schumacher commented on the changes: "They are positive, especially as far as qualifying is concerned," said the world champion. "The new system should suit me as I am quite good at setting a fast time straight away. As regards the cancellation of the Belgian Grand Prix, naturally, I am a bit disappointed, given I have great memories of the Spa circuit."
