Teams challenge F1 scoring system
Formula 1's teams claim the new scoring system introduced earlier this week is not valid and cannot be used in 2009.
They argue that the changes, which stipulate that the driver with most wins will become world champion, did not meet the necessary regulations.
F1's governing body, the FIA, announced it was amending the scoring system in order to make racing more exciting.
But the Formula One Teams Association (Fota) said it "unanimously agreed to question the validity" of the decision.
"It is too late for FIA to impose a change for the 2009 season that has not obtained the unanimous agreement of all the competitors properly entered into the 2009 Formula 1 Championship," read a Fota statement, issued on Friday.

I hope they succeed :-)
