Ferrari would have a representative on the board in Luca di Montezemolo, the team's president. One would also be allotted to Dietrich Mateschitz, the billionaire founder of Red Bull and a friend of Ecclestone. But there would be no seats for McLaren, one of the sport's most successful teams, or Mercedes which has invested huge amounts in F1.

Ferrari yes, Red Bull no.
No way is Red Bull a long haul team like McLaren or Ferrari. It's a joke that they have dispensation whereas other teams dont.
Red Bull aren't in favour of frivolous spending, and we're as keen as anyone to control costs in F1. I don't believe the RRA is the right or effective route. [It's also not] one the FIA should really get involved in, because it's fraught with complications. Our feeling is the most effective way to control costs is through the technical regulations. Controlling tangible things like the amount of people we have at a grand prix, the amount of engines, gearboxes, the amount of testing we can do, are clear and transparent ways to control costs. Red Bull aren't in favour of frivolous spending, and we're as keen as anyone to control costs in F1, but to try to do it through equivalence as the RRA is constructed is fraught with problems. [The customer car] eradicates your R&D costs and you effectively would acquire a rolling chassis or the basis of a chassis, which would be an awful lot more competitive than where some of those teams are.
[The teams wanted to] look at fair ways of introducing regulations or procedures to keep the costs under control and further reduce costs.
