Joint car launch cancelled

The planned joint launch of all the 2010 F1 cars in Valencia in late January has been cancelled.

The teams had last week agreed to implement cost-cutting measures, which included the joint launch, but could not agree on the details of the launch. However, the idea will be looked at again for 2011.

There were concerns that only the main teams would get big coverage at the event, and sponsors would not be reported on enough. Many teams were also worried that they would not have their car finished on time.

Because of a lack of time to tackle these problems, this idea has been scrapped for 2010. However, FOTA is still looking at trying this launch again in 2011.
