Unsurprisingly, one rival team boss did not support that view when it was put to him by RaceFans.
“I don’t think any team in any sport should have some sort of say that’s greater than any other racing team,” said McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown.
“I think sometimes we’re very aligned with Ferrari’s thinking and I think there’ll be times that we aren’t. And so if the teams want to collectively have a veto on topics I’d rather see the teams come together and nominate someone to speak on behalf of the teams to address big issues as opposed to leaving it to a single team.”
However Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said he “likes the veto”, when asked about it by RaceFans. “I think the veto protects us from madness,” he said.
Ferrari is in discussions with the FIA and F1 about whether it will be allowed to keep its veto should it commit to continue in the sport beyond 2020.
