The one year delay of the 2014 rules has been documented extensively on http://www.mulsannescorner.com/newsjan12.html
Recent rumors out of Europe have suggested that the ACO2014 regulations were to be delayed to 2015 because of disagreements amongst the various parties. We've contacted our usual sources and the resounding chorus is that no, to the contrary, the FIA and ACO continue to work diligently to produce the new regulations. And the expectation is still that the new rules will be out sooner rather than later. As the months go on one does begin to wonder what "sooner" means (recall that just a few months ago the anticipation was to see the rules before the end of 2011)? The ACO and FIA are due to meet again on February 14.
