Vastavam web: Force India and Sauber have withdrawn their 2015 complaint with the European Commission against anti-competitive practices in Formula 1.The teams have taken the decision considering the improving state of affairs in the sport under new owners Liberty Media.”Their approach has brought a new culture of transparency to the sport and illustrates willingness to debate fundamental issues such as the distribution of the prize fund monies, cost control and engine regulations.”

The mid-field teams had filed the complaint when Bernie Ecclestone was in charge of Formula 1.”While the concerns leading to the compliant were fully justified, we believe this new approach provides the necessary degree of assurance that our concerns will be looked at objectively, and we prefer to resolve the issues facing the sport through dialogue rather than a legal dispute.
