Who knew? Apparently the GPDA (Grand Prix Drivers Association) has some political pull after all. After a meeting with the FIA, the fees for the Superlicense, required to drive in F1 races, has been reduced.
“Following a very positive meeting between FIA President Max Mosley and representatives of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association (GPDA), a proposal will be made to the World Motor Sport Council to revise superlicence fees for drivers in the 2010 championship,” said the FIA in a statement.
“A reduced fee would reflect the major cost reductions that will be brought into the sport for next season.
“A number of other issues were discussed and the FIA has agreed to meet representatives of the GPDA on a regular basis to maintain what promises to be a constructive dialogue.”
