The World Motor Sport Council met in Paris on 24 June 2009. The following decisions were taken:
FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
All currently competing teams have committed to the FIA Formula One World Championship.
There will be no alternative series or championship and the rules for 2010 onwards will be the 2009 regulations as well as further regulations agreed prior to 29 April 2009.
As part of this agreement, the teams will, within two years, reduce the costs of competing in the championship to the level of the early 1990s. The manufacturer teams have agreed to assist the new entries for 2010 by providing technical assistance.
The manufacturer teams have further agreed to the permanent and continuing role of the FIA as the sport’s governing body. They have also committed to the commercial arrangements for the FIA Formula One World Championship until 2012 and have agreed to renegotiate and extend this contract before the end of that period.
All teams will adhere to an upgraded version of the governance provisions of the 1998 Concorde Agreement.

The Season Five Calendar for A1GP World Cup of Motorsport has been approved by the FIA at this week’s World Motorsport Council Meeting.
Ten dates have been submitted, starting with the first race of the 2009/10 season, the Nitro SuperGP in Australia on 22-25 October.A1GP Chairman, Tony Teixeira said: “We are in a totally different position to most series as we straddle two calendar years. This makes announcing a calendar with all its dates and venues more challenging.
“However, we are well advanced with all our Season Five contracts, and for those we have yet to make public have plans to announce them with events in the specific countries.”
The two races announced to date are completely new events in the Gold Coast and Assen, but the series will also include some of the traditional A1GP events.“Our plans include some very exciting new venues that I can assure the teams and the fans will be very popular,” added Teixeira.
“While at the moment we have submitted a ten-race calendar, I am hopeful of adding one or two more dates in the coming months.”Nitro SuperGP General Manager Greg Hooton said he looked forward to hosting the A1GP on the streets of Surfers Paradise come October.“It is fantastic to be the first event of the 2009/2010 A1GP season, and everyone here is looking forward to hosting the World Cup of Motorsport on the Gold Coast,” said Hooton.“The A1GP will join the Australian V8 Supercars Championship Series as the co-headline act at the world’s premiere motorsport festival, the Nitro SuperGP, which is enjoying its 19 consecutive year in 2009.”
