Max Mosley has also agreed to lower the cost of this year's formula one superlicenses.

It was reported last month that the FIA president had backed down in his dispute with the drivers' body GPDA, who were unhappy about recent price hikes for their mandatory credential.

The FIA said a month ago that a proposal "will be made to the World Motor Sport Council to revise super licence fees for drivers in the 2010 championship".

But Germany's Auto Motor und Sport insists that the lower price will also apply to 2009. Instead of 2000 euros being charged per point, the FIA has agreed to charge only 500 per point scored.

Drivers have already paid for their 2009 licenses, so they will be issued refunds to reflect the change, the magazine said.
