Valles to US F1?

Adrian Valles in frame to team up with José María López at F1 2010 newcomer USF1.
Having confirmed a deal with José María López last week, the USF1 team now appears to be close to announcing its second driver, with Adrian Valles said to be in 'well advanced' talks with the Carolina-based operation.

According to reports by Spanish newspaper, Marca, the 23-year-old will sign a one-year deal 'imminently'.

"I'm sorry, I can't talk," Valles told sportinglife.com when asked about the rumours. "I just hope things don't go wrong."

Valles, who was a test and reserve driver for the Spyker F1 team in 2007, won the Superleague Formula title in 2009.

If he is confirmed by the Peter Windsor and Ken Anderson-led outfit he will become the fourth Spaniard on the grid for F1 2010, along with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, Sauber's Pedro de la Rosa and Scuderia Toro Rosso's Jaime Alguersuari.

More to follow as and when it develops...

Only way forward was for the team to choose a known quantity in one car. Maybe Heidfeld? With two novices, they will have no idea how good the car is, or how fast the drivers are.

Well, so much for American drivers! First a "headquarters" in NC, that is really only an office, and a CAD wind-tunnel! Now we have two non-US drivers! This is not going to win any US support! It may last the entire season.....maybe.
