F1 » Anderson: USF1 has asked to miss first four races

USF1 co-founder and team principal Ken Anderson finally breaks the financially-troubled F1 2010 newcomer's silence - by admitting that the team has approached the FIA to be allowed to miss the first four grands prix of the forthcoming campaign

agree with devilsadvocate on this one, usf1 are not worth a slot on this year grid. Stefan GP are much better prepared and just need to tell us the drivers names. Come on DWARF, i mean bernie soz, get shot of them.

It's an absolute farce - a p*** take of the highest order. Why this team of incompetents were selected over the likes of Prodrive or Lola is a sham.

Whilst their clear inability to pull a team togther is startlingly obvious, the real blame for this lies with the corrupt and bent FIA.

Give the slot to Stefan if it helps to put cars onto the grid but anyone and everyone knows that had Prodrive and Lola been given the nod, both would have been there....

Shame, shame, shame.........

USF1 were the first team to announce back in 2009 their intention to join the GP circus and to have achieved so little in so much time is a sick joke,FIA take the money and run and give the slot to another team that has a viable business plan and doesn't think it it's waving when in reality are drowning!

Somehow I don't see potential new sponsors flocking to this team now, simply because of what appears like incompetence. Image is also a big part of F1 being the pinnacle of motorsport. I mean, if I were a new sponsor I'd be thinking 'what will they do with my money'? Will I be pouring millions down the toilet?

Also, what happens if they DON'T make it to the grid after the 4th race, cos they couldn't find or convince new sponsors? Stefan will be lumbered with the 4-race deficit due to USF1's mess, plus no proper testing.

If the FIA need a replacement in Stefan, I reckon they should make the switch right now, and allow Stefan an extra 4 to 6 days' grace in testing their car! It's only fair..

Just when you thought that F1 was finally recovering from its recent poor reputation! Both the FIA and USF1 have gone about everything wrong! The first blot on what was looking like a superb season! Even if Stefan got the green light now, everything is all askew in their overall preparation, with Bahrain only 3 weeks away. FIA, get it sorted! This is no way to run F1! :?

Another Mosely / FIA ****up bringing the sport into disrepute. The selection process must have been somewhat flawed / bent! Lotus had less than 1/3 of the time USF1 has had to get going and are already testing. Dump these wasters before the sport is made to look any more stupid. Get Stefan GP signed to the Concord agreement and lets have some racing. NO special dispensations should be allowed. Didn't USF1 read the Concord agreement that they signed?
