In order to preserve the safety and the image of the FIA Formula One World Championship, its governing body, the FIA, has adopted a new registration system, which applies to all teams competing in the championship.

Thus, all Formula One teams will be required to nominate a number of senior team members to register with the FIA at the start of each season.

These registered team members will be granted a formal certificate and will be required to comply with the new FIA Code of Good Standing, starting at the beginning of the 2011 season.

The FIA and Formula One’s participating teams share a common vision for the safety and image of the FIA Formula One World Championship. With this in mind, all parties, after fruitful and positive discussions, have agreed to implement this registration system.
