Briatore: F1 row must be solved 'at all costs'

RENAULT boss Flavio Briatore insists a solution to the row over new rules for 2010 must be achieved &ldquo;at all costs&rdquo; when F1 chiefs meet for crisis talks in London today.<br /><br />Toyota, Red Bull, Ferrari and Renault have all vowed to quit the sport at the end of the season unless plans for a voluntary &pound;40m budget cap are scrapped.<br /><br />Indeed, suggestions of a breakaway series have already been muted, and Briatore is calling on F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone and FIA president Max Mosley to settle on a compromise package to avoid an exodus.<br /><br />Speaking on the possibility of a rebel category, Briatore said: &ldquo;It is a remote hypothesis that everyone wants to avoid. &ldquo;We are living in a difficult moment and we must find a solution at all costs. I hope Max Mosley and his men will mend their ways, in order to start over in full harmony.&rdquo;<br /><br />Mosley meets with the teams&rsquo; umbrella organisation FOTA for crisis talks today, looking to rubber-stamp his new budget cap, which he believes will give teams greater technical freedom. But the teams believe it will create a two-tier championship and refuse to submit their entries for 2010 before the 29 May deadline.<br /><br />Ecclestone, however, has hinted that a compromise could be on the cards, saying: &ldquo;They don&rsquo;t want to leave Formula One and we don&rsquo;t want to lose them, so we&rsquo;ll get to grips with it.&rdquo;
