Campos gets set to join FOTA

The new Campos Meta F1 team has revealed that it has taken steps to join the Formula One Teams Associations, whilst also confirming that it plans to hit the track for the first time with its 2010 car in mid-January.

The Spanish outfit will be one of four new teams on the grid next season, along with USF1, Manor and Lotus and is set to strengthen its position in the field by joining the established members of the grid in the teams' association.

Campos took the first steps towards joining FOTA during the Italian Grand Prix weekend at Monza and is now set to become a full member of the group with approval from FOTA's executive committee. Team boss Adrian Campos is due to attend FOTA meetings this weekend during the Singapore Grand Prix.

As well as confirming its plans to join FOTA, Campos has also revealed that it has set a target of mid-January to hit the track for the first time with its Dallara-designed car.

The team has received a visit from FIA delegates at Dallara's headquarters in Italy, with the team revealing that feedback from the governing body had been 'extremely positive', with all steps and deadlines having been fulfilled.

As is the case with the other new teams, Campos will use Cosworth engines for its first foray into the top echelon of the sport, with team boss Campos saying he was confident the company would help the team be successful when it hits the track for its debut in Bahrain.

“We are delighted to work together with Cosworth,” he said. “They have an experienced and committed team working on the development of our engines and we are convinced they will deliver precisely what is needed to fulfil our objectives and a successful debut in Formula One.”

Max won't like this. They may have had the thumbs up from FIA delegates so far, but I wouldn't be surprised if 'technical issues' start to arise fter this statement.

@ Robsy I can't see a problem. Why WOn't MAx like this statement? He chose Campos after all - and their engine supplier :) I hope Campos do well, in fact I hope all the new teams do well. It will be good for F1 - let's have something other than scandals to focus our attentions on. Four new teams is good. Whether they are the right new teams is still up for debate. Prodrive, Epsilon Eskuadi and Lola probably still can't believe it. But as I said, let's forget the scandals.
