FIA in lookout of a new F1 team for 2016

Snapshot: The FIA has said that they are looking forward towards a new team for the 2016 F1 season.

By this time, it's evident that there's a lot of difference between Bernie Ecclestone and FIA, the governing body of Motorsports globally. While Bernie says that Jean Todt leaded FIA is slow and too much into democracy, Todt says that Bernie's style of dictatorship is harmful for the Formula1. And now the difference has come forward in the process of team selection.

The FIA has said that they are looking forward towards a new team for the 2016 F1 season. While Bernie has already expressed his desire to eliminate all the small teams and pushing the bigger teams to put a third car on the grid. He is also pushing his 'super GP2' solution. Teams like Force India, Manor and Sauber are in imminent danger, says Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.

Another solution that came erupted in Monaco GP was all about 'customers cars' and a "some last-minute panic" has taken place according to correspondent Michael Schmidt. The paddock during every race in 2015 is filled with discussions over the future of the sport. The solution about big teams providing smaller teams their own car is the most talked about proposal right now.

But FIA has its own inhibitions and they have stepped in and launched a new selection process that will identify a new F1 team for "the start of the 2016 or 2017 season". The new process is in "due regard for the sustainability and future success" of the sport, said the FIA in a statement. "In the event that no applicant is considered suitable by both the FIA and the commercial rights holder, no additional team will be selected."

The FIA is inviting applications till the end of the June and the screening will be done three months later. It will be interesting to see who all put their application in, considering, it is extremely expensive to keep a F1 team abuzz.
