Zak Brown believes Formula 1 should stop trying to make perfect rules

McLaren CEO Zak Brown has insisted Formula 1 needs to step up its efforts of trying to agree a deal for the 2021 rules package and stop waiting for the "perfect rules".

In June, it was agreed that the deadline for the sign-off for the new deal would be delayed until the end of October, but Brown believes it is unlikely we will see a deal on the postponed date either.

"We're talking about the same issue time and time again," Brown said to RaceFans. "Very little progress is made because all the teams have stated their position, and that's not going to change.

"So it seems like we revisit the same issues that the various teams have and so I think at this point, Formula 1 and the FIA just need to make the decision and get on with it because I don't think they're going to hear anything new from the teams at the next Strategy Group meeting or the following meeting that they haven't heard in the last 12 months.

"The idea, and you guys (the media) all know this as well as anyon, that the 10 teams are somehow going to converge for the first time in the history of Formula 1 in the next three months is just not going to happen. I think it's just time to get the show on the road.

"You're never going to end up with perfect rules. You're going to have to modify along the way anyway."


Will the deal be agreed by the October deadline?
