Zoran Stefanovic believes there are two entries which may fail to get on the grid in 2010.

The owner of potential F1 entrant Stefan GP told F1 Fanatic: “Our sources tell us two teams are having problems.”

His team is carrying on its preparations for the 2010 F1 season despite not having an entry to compete.

There have been rumours that the Campos Meta 1 and US F1 teams might not be ready in time for the start of the championship at Bahrain next month. With today’s announcements we know at least as much about Stefan GP’s plans as we do the other two teams.

Stefanovic added:

We are fully able to do this if we get the opportunity to. The only question is whether we will get to. We will have more to say very soon but we are concentrating on things other than PR at the moment.

Stefan GP confirmed earlier today it plans to be at the Bahrain Grand Prix and will test at Portimao in Portugal on February 25th. It has acquired the car designed by Toyota for the 2010 season and a supply of its engines with support from Toyota Motorsport.

Stefanovic did not confirm rumours one of the teams’ drivers will be Kazuki Nakajima. But the team put out a statement earlier saying its first driver already had two years’ experience in F1, so Nakajima fits the bill, as well as being supported by Toyota.
