The FIA is yet to receive notice of the formula one teams' intention to install a new points system in time for the 2009 season.

The FIA is yet to receive notice of the formula one teams' intention to install a new points system in time for the 2009 season.

The FOTA alliance announced the pending change at its Geneva press conference last week, but it must first be tabled for ratification by the World Motor Sport Council.

The only opportunity for this to happen is the meeting scheduled for March 17, less than ten days before the beginning of official action at the Melbourne season opener.

"If the points system is to be changed for this season, the Council must approve it on this day," FIA spokesman Richard Woods is quoted as saying by Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.

"Up to now, the teams have not placed a request," he explained.
