The nine FOTA teams on Friday said their entries to contest the 2010 world championship are "conditional".

Five new teams, and suspended FOTA team Williams, have already met the FIA's midnight deadline.

Attached to the block entries by Ferrari, Toyota, McLaren, BMW, Renault, Red Bull, Toro Rosso, Brawn and Force India, however, is the stipulation that the sport's governing body tear up its published 2010 rules and revert to this year's regulations "amended in accordance with proposals ... submitted to the FIA".

It has been reported that a compromise agreed in principle is for a 100m euro cap next year, granting special assistances to small entries, before the 45m euro cap arrives in 2011.

The FIA is yet to comment.

In a media statement, FOTA also vowed to sign a new Concorde agreement by June 12 - the day of the announcement of the 2010 entry list - with the teams committing until 2012 and ensuring "stability via sound governance".
