Red Bull reach agreement with Mercedes and Ferrari over 2021 F1 rules, but issues still persist.
The 2021 F1 rules are still hanging in the balance, with the FIA and Liberty Media not really able to get all teams onto the same page.
The top 3 teams want to ensure that they don’t really lose out on their dominance, with the midfield teams striving for a level playing field.
Obviously, an agreement is going to be tough to formulate; with different teams having different agendas.
But, Liberty Media and the FIA are making sure that the strategy meetings help bring out grievances and inputs from all teams.

Helmut Marko has confirmed that Red Bull have reached an agreement with Mercedes and Ferrari over 2021 rules, but an overall agreement with all teams is yet to take place.
Liberty Media are focussed on introducing a budget cap, one that was being opposed by the top teams, but Marko has confirmed that an agreement has been reached, but only between the top 3 teams.
“We are still a long way from an agreement.” Marko claimed.
“Basically, we agree with Ferrari and Mercedes in terms of numbers, but the other teams are still very critical.
“We also need to discuss which departments of the racing team fall under the budget limit. Nothing is clear.
“Controlling it is very difficult to accomplish. How do you know which computer is working for the car company and which is working for Formula 1?” he added.
