They definately know something or else they would shelve the plans. Either Stefan GP are very clever or extremely foolish and arrogant.

USF1 and Campos have both gone quiet so which is for the chop or is it both? Campos in financial difficulties and USF1 with no car and no drivers. My money's on USF1 being gone very shortly, especially as Windy was the only team principle not to sign an agreement preventing the sale of their team (or was it grid slot) before (I think) the start of the season.

I agree, looks to me like they've been given the nod.

USF1's first driver choice smacked of financial desperation, and Campos have been struggling for a while with finance. Either way, there's no place for under financed new teams in F1, therefore, if Stefan GP have got the money and a car, then they've got to be a better bet.

Interestingly, has anyone noticed that's former McLaren Chief Designer Mike Coughlan in the foreground ? They'll be signing Nigel Stepney as Chief Mechanic, Dave Ryan as Sporting Director (hopefully), Pat Symonds as Technical Director and Flav as Team Principal before the end of the month. So long as they don't sign Nelson Piquet Jnr.....

These guys def. know something we don't know. Why invest so much money and trouble? These guys ain't doing this for nothing, everything has a reason.

Nakajima? *groan*

I want Stefen GP in F1 and can obviously understand why Nakajima, but Heidfeld, Sato, Fisichella, DAVIDSON!!!

Anyway, will be a very interesting story to follow over the coming weeks, I'm sure there'll be lots of ifs and buts and will they, won't they, etc. We won't know for sure till qualiying :D

Nice of Toyota to take care about their drivers. That said, I'd love to see Sato back just for entertainment.

USF1 has issued some videos about their plant and workshop but I've yet to witness anything from Campos...Wonder which one will be folding or is it just bluff - and a mighty one that would be - from Stefan GP ?

I would say Campos are looking the most dodgy.

Dallara are apparently holding the chassis back as they haven't been paid, not sure what truth there is in that.

Their website could have been knocked up in an afternoon (no kidding).

Of the two USF1 are more likely to make the grid, just my opinion.

Bit of a shame for Bruno Senna.
