The F1 Promoters’ Association, which represents 16 of the 21 races on the calendar, say they want “a more collaborative approach from F1” in future.
They are worried about the loss of free-to-air television, a lack of clarity over rules and F1’s attempts to attract new races.
The race organisers will express those concerns to F1 bosses in London on Tuesday.
The circuits’ intervention comes at a delicate time for F1, with the contracts of five major races all up for renewal at the end of this season.
All want to continue to host races but say they cannot do so under the financial terms on offer from F1, which is owned by US group Liberty Media.
They have been concerned by what they believe was Liberty’s willingness to offer an advantageous deal to Miami for a race-insiders claim that it was effectively offered a race for free, so keen was F1 to secure an event in the Florida city.
A new contract, negotiated by former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone before Liberty took over, kicks in which sees live coverage of all races on Sky this year.
The race tracks believe that moving from free-to-air will inevitably restrict F1’s reach to a casual audience, removing part of the audience, and restricting it only to hardcore fans.
