Stefan GP not granted F1 entry
Stefan Grand Prix’s hopes of getting on the grid in 2010 as Team US F1’s replacement suffered a blow on Wednesday night, when the FIA announced only 12 teams on its 2010 entry list.
Following weeks of speculation about the fate of the final slots of the grid, following US F1’s uncertain future, the sport’s governing body finally released the list of competitors for 2010.
Team US F1 was absent – with a note at the bottom stating the team had: “indicated that they will not be in a position to participate in 2010“.
The FIA said no replacement could be considered so close to the start of the season.
“Having considered the various options, the FIA confirms that it is not possible for a replacement team to be entered for the Championship at this late stage“, the FIA said.
“In the coming days the FIA will announce details of a new selection process to identify candidates to fill any vacancies existing at the start of the 2011 season“.
The entry list also confirmed that Campos has been renamed HRT, and that BMW Sauber will retain the ‘BMW’ moniker for 2010 despite the German car manufacturer having pulled out of the sport last season.
The FIA also confirmed Sauber’s team numbers – which has been uncertain for several months after it temporarily lost its entry. Pedro de la Rosa will be number 22, and Kamui Kobayashi 23.
