Peter Sauber, one of the most successful privateer formula one chiefs, has questioned the new rules published by the FIA this week.

Despite the opposition from giant-budget teams like Ferrari, Max Mosley claims interest in his two-tier voluntary cap system for 2010 "has been extraordinarily high".

But the fact that the rules will involve two sets of technical regulations - one for capped teams, one for uncapped teams - is also being criticised by existing teams, while Sauber wonders if the caps can be policed.

"It will be extremely difficult to stop cheating," the Swiss, still involved with his Hinwil-based team after selling it to BMW three years ago, said.

65-year-old Sauber also queries some of the details of the extra technical freedoms for the capped teams.

"With the front wing an adjustable mechanism is acceptable, because if it breaks then the driver simply gets understeer," the Swiss told Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.

"A moveable rear wing is insane," Sauber added. "If something goes wrong, you just fly off the track."
