STUTTGART - Max Mosley, president of motorsport's governing body, FIA, denied in an interview published on Monday that FIA agreed a deal with Ferrari over rule changes at a meeting on 28 January which the other nine Formula One teams decided not to attend.

Mosley described the accusation as "a fairy tale" which was "without logic".

"If I could, I'd slow them (Ferrari) down," said Mosley. "There is nothing worse for Formula One than the same team always winning."

The Briton went on to say that the nine teams would have no influence over the new rules by staying away from meetings with FIA.

"Those boycotting will earn nothing through their tactics," said Mosley. "At the end of 2005, there will be a new set of rules laid out, which will run until 2008."

Mosley concluded by urging the nine teams to take part in the nexty meeting, scheduled for 15 April in Paris.

The 2005 season starts on 6 March with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.
