F1 » New US team awarded FIA Formula 1 licence


US F1 Team was a proposed Formula One team that was granted entry to the 2010 season.[1] However, the team stopped work on its car and did not compete in 2010.

This was part of Anderson and Windsor's plan to promote American drivers and technology, as was their initial aim to run two American drivers in the 2010 season
