Apparently not.

The current agreement runs to the end of the 2020 season BJ.

I think the boards of Mercedes and Ferrari may yet have a bit to say about the cost-cap rules and the meddling in their affairs.
Add Honda and Renault too.

im not to worried about Merc leaving..even if they do, they will remain an engine supplier most notably with Mclaren running from 2021 to 2024. also, given the size of their investment, i dont see them leaving until they break a few more records.

Ferrari always talk about leaving and while it would be tragic to see them go, my personal feeling is that they are just not as popular as they once were. 10 years of staff and driver turnover, so many many mistakes at the track, and an aging fan base/tifosi...they probably still have the largest fan base (judging by the amount of kit you see trackside) but where would that fan base go if Ferrari left F1?

leaving on a down note does not necessarily encourage your fans to follow you over to another series. no one follows the kid who took their ball home crying. that kid just gets beat up and their ball taken away so the game can continue without them.

this might be weird to say, but if they do go and it becomes RB-Honda (max fighting for titles) and Mclaren (return to glory and/or a LH return to Mclaren) at the top then that might be the single best thing to happen to F1.

all that said though, i hope Merc and Ferrari stay...i would like to see them have to honestly compete against teams with similar budgets and with the possibility of getting beaten on track.

If Mercedes do pull out from running their own team, would Toto do a Brawn and buy the team from the manufacturer? Who knows, I wouldn’t rule it out

Isn't threatening to leave step #1 in all Concorde Agreement negotiations?

Fans threaten to leave all the time!

as far as i know there is nothing concrete to suggest that they are leaving.

It was purely a 'what if' line of speculation on my part.

If they are going to leave, I would think it might be after Mercedes secured Lewis's 8th WDC, beating Schumacher's record and winning the next two WCCs, or at least try to.
