They have made this far as they have the backing to go the first few steps in the first place. I am not doubting their talent. No way. I have been a passanger with both and they are legendary!! But they have accomplished what they have accomplished ONLY because the first steps were easy for them.

I'm not saying he doesn't deserve his F1 seat. What I am saying is that he should spend a couple more years in GP2 and win that championship before moving on to F1. A premature move to F1 may backfire on him. Making an F1 debut is one thing but making a successful F1 debut is what gets the attention of the top teams.

This is great news .
But Stefan GP has very remote chances of gettting on the grid for 2010 . Planet f1 suggests that USF1 may shut down so you never know . Even Campos is reported to have financial difficulties .

This news seems to have a lot of twists . Autosport reports that Jose Ramon Carabante is on the verge of taking full control of the Campos team , and :

US F1 and Stefan GP are rumoured to be in merger talks to ensure a thirteenth team is present at the first race of the season in Bahrain.

American broadcaster Speed is reporting that YouTube entrepreneur and US F1 backer Chad Hurley is in talks with Zoran Stefanovic to run Stefan GP's cars under US F1's entry. The solution would neatly bypass the FIA having to open the final grid slot to tender if US F1 fails to overcome its problems.

Opposition is believed to be coming from team principals Peter Windsor and Ken Anderson, who are both still hoping to bring an all-American entry back to life. The FIA sent Charlie Whiting to inspect the team's factory on Wednesday but has not indicated whether it will take any action. However, if US F1 comes under pressure from Hurley, the FIA and Bernie Ecclestone - who appears to favour Stefan GP over US F1 - Windsor and Anderson may be left with little choice but to accept the merger.

Stefanovic is confident his team can be ready in time to race in Bahrain, but only if he is receives confirmation of an entry by next Wednesday. 1997 champion Jacques Villeneuve and ex-Williams driver Kazuki Nakajima would likely drive its Toyota-derived cars.
