Monza:

Jean Todt, the head of F1's governing body, says teams must work together to cut costs and prevent rivals from being forced out of the sport.


Earlier this week, Todt said that if costs don't decrease by at least 30 percent over the next three years, the sport risks losing several teams.

"We must reduce the costs in order to keep everybody on board," Todt said on Saturday, ahead of the Italian Grand Prix. "It's everybody's responsibility. We all need to share it, but I have never heard somebody saying we are against reducing costs. I'm sure if we make sensible proposals then everybody will be happy with that.

"My job as president of the FIA is to make sure things happen, and as long as I am president of the FIA, they will. We work for the good of the sport, and the good of the sport is to have everybody working together. That's Formula One, rallying, everybody. All the categories of sport need to reach a higher level, and to do that we all have to work together."
