Not much has been happening in F1 since the deadline day last Friday, not much that has been made public. The most interesting probably is the ever growing list of new teams that submitted their 2010 entries.
Campos Meta, US F1 Team, Prodrive and Lola announced their entry submissions before the deadline. Over the weekend news came out Austria that Alex Wurz lodged F1 entry with a new Team Superfund. The latest team believed to have submitted the entry is March (competed in F1 between 1970 – 1993). Some sources say that Litespeed is also among the potential new entrants. The only thing on Litespeed website however is their few weeks old press release stating their intention to apply for their place on 2010 F1 grid.
Yesterday stories started to circulate about Brabham‘s entry. It looks however that the original source is a magazine often quoted by a certain agency in stories that often later prove to be just that – stories. So better wait before getting excited about Brabham’s return to F1. Another team that some believe may be on the list is Epsilon-Euskadi but I haven’t found anything official on their entry anywhere.
While all the talk about new teams may be exciting what really matters is the reaction of Max Mosley and FIA to the conditional entry submitted by FIA. Until now there has been no reaction. This may mean that FOTA and FIA continue talking behind the scenes. This may however also mean the opposite – there are no more talks and FOTA members simply await the next move from Mosley. If the latter is the case then Max Mosley was either left speachless by FOTA’s move or he is quietly getting ready to shock us all with whatever he and FIA plan to come up with on June 12.
