LONDON: Formula One drivers met Max Mosley, head of the sport's governing body, on Monday to discuss measures to improve safety at private testing.
A dozen drivers, including both active world champions Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve, took part in the south of France talks.
“The meeting with the drivers was very constructive,” said Mosley. “The discussions covered a wide range of topics which included safety at testing, regulations for 2008, super-licences, overtaking and qualifying.”
The drivers want to put safety measures at test sessions on a par with grands prix.
“This is actually my biggest concern,” Briton David Coulthard, one of those attending the meeting, told the Autosport-Atlas website at the weekend.
“My biggest accidents have actually come in testing as a result of mechanical failure,” added the Scot. – Reuters
