Leaked message from Ferrari to the governing body wrote:Not only have the FOCA teams skipped mandatory driver safety briefings, they have also continued to race despite outstanding fees to the giverning body.

Ferrari has always worked closely with the governing body :binotto:

If those fines remain unpaid, we will seek: The disqualification of all concerned teams from all races since the French Grand Prix, with points inherited by those further down the timesheets.

If those teams do pay the fines, we will seek: The disqualification of those teams from the French and British Grand Prix, with points inherited by those further down the timesheets.

As demonstrated by the tragic loss of Tom Pryce, safety is not to be trifled with. These teams continue to do so, and an example must be made forthwith.

Autosport wrote:FISA withdraw support for Dutch GP; race goes ahead as Non-Championship
The breakdown of summit talks between FISA and FOCA at the 1979 Dutch Grand Prix saw FISA's Jean-Marie Balestre withdraw support for Zandvoort event. FOCA teams, allegedly furious after their calls for a reversal of the sliding skirt ban for 1980 went unanswered. Despite instructing his teams to refuse to pay the fines accrued from missed driver briefings to the sport's governing body, FOCA chairman Bernie Eccelstone insisted the problem was on Balestre's part.

The race was set to be cancelled at the last minute were it not for the intervention of Prince Bernhard, royal patron of the Royal Dutch Touring Club (ANWB) who organised the race.

Local Formula One team owner Bob Sparshott

After a difficult season, B&S Fabrications team owner Bob Sparshott agreed to sit down with the Herald and Post, on the condition that Sue Jawhard not be involved.

So Bob, how do you explain your team failing to prequalify all season?
Quite simply, we never expected to. This season was all about survival as a team with an eye on prospering more in the new decade.

By what standards do you expect to prosper?
Spartec is definitely a project for us. The G71A is the very first baby step towards our ultimate goal of World Constructors Championship points. Of course it is not a fast enough car to achieve that, but our plan is for the next car to be much much closer.

That's a big step.
Yes it is.

How does a team move from the back to the front of the field?
Formula One is changing incredibly fast at present. If we can get out in front of just one of those big changes then it'll completely change our fortunes as a team.

Do you have anything in particular that you are focussed on?
We are hoping to build a better chassis for 1980, and we also intend to offer ourselves to any teams wishing to develop any prospective turbocharged engines. We have demonstrated in the Procar Championship this year that we are more than capable of working with manufacturers.

And what do you say to people who are unconvinced by Britain's slowest Formula One team?
We say that we are very serious competitors indeed. Our budget is a fraction of teams like Williams, Lotus or McLaren, but we will prove that we can sit at the same table as those teams. And specifically to certain drivers - they know who they are; we have been making approaches already - we say that we want to welcome you into an exciting and ambitious project.

Of course, we cannot talk about Formula One without talking about politics. What can you tell us at present?
Not a great deal to be honest. We are very much at the bottom of the food chain, but we pay our fees to the Formula One Constructors Association and that is our position on things at present. We will keep our options open at the end of the season, and should a choice present itself then we will try to take the option that best serves our continuing presence in the sport.

There are rumours of teams pulling out of Formula One. Is there a chance B&S will be one of them?
None whatsoever.

Mr Sparshott, thank you. And good luck at the Dutch Grand Prix

This interview was conducted before the teams set off to Zandvoort.

Dilemma 3: Breakaway?.

FOCA teams are outraged at Balestre's plans for the future of the sport. In retaliation, Bernie is looking to form the World Federation of Motorsport in 1980 as a competitor to FISA hegemony on Grand Prix racing.

FOCA teams can:
Option A: Vote to join the breakaway. This will take effect at the conclusion of 1979.
Option B: Decline to join the breakaway and become a FISA aligned team.

FISA teams can:
Option C: Oppose the breakaway and pledge support to FISA's vision of Formula One.
Option D: Join the breakaway. [Interscope only]

He refused to give any more details, but did confirm that he would be the only person from his country ever to have raced an F1 car, which would seem to rule out Argentina, Brazil or Uruguay as his (or her) place of origin.

British Formula One Racing Team to redirect investment
One of the very smallest pieces of news from the Formula One paddock was that the investors that have kept the British Formula One Racing Team afloat over recent years will no longer try to run their own operation. Instead, they have agreed to lend their support to B&S Fabrications for the 1980 season "in light of the increasing push for professionalism in Formula One", strengthening a relationship that already existed between the two teams thanks to the loan of B&S Procar driver Divina Galica for the European Grand Prix at Brands Hatch.

Luton-based racing outfit B&S Fabrications today shockingly announced a close partnership with frontrunning Formula One outfit, John Player Team Lotus for the 1980 Formula One season.

The team released a prepared statement which detailed an £800,000 investment from Lotus to B&S, in return for control over one of the team's two racing seats, into which they would place driver(s) they wish to evaluate ahead of the 1981 season. Sparshott confirmed a seven-name shortlist, but refused to go into specifics.

Spartec, meanwhile, would use the money to develop a car in which said driver could gain valuable experience ahead of a likely move to the front of the Formula One grid.
