Stefan GP to reveal car next week

Stefan GP has said it will reveal the car it wishes to contest the 2010 F1 season with next week.

In a statement on its website the team said:

If case we don?t receive the chance to compete in Bahrain, and also when some of the teams fail to show up, somebody should be in a trouble explaining what is happen to all of us.

They also attacked US F1 whose hopes of getting a car on the grid this year appear to have stalled:

And dreamers from USA will have to explain their actions, because they are deliberately weakening F1 with dreaming of perfect world and fairytales about success. And success doesn?t come by talking but with hard work and lot of guts.

With the first qualifying session of 2010 just two weeks away the FIA is yet to confirm exactly who will be racing.

Update: Will Buxton reckons Stefan GP won’t be racing at Bahrain: StefanGP will not race in Bahrain

    Motorsport-total, is reporting that USF1/Stefan have fallen through. According to Stefanovic, Hurley wasn’t the problem, but USF1’s “other” investors.

    /Facepalm

  3. 26 cars on the Grid is the best for us (F1 fans).

    Stefan GP should be given this whole season a chance.
    Great for us, rather than having a team coming half way after the season. Just for the sake of it, rather than having an intention to be competitive.

  4. And what if there are 3 other teams with some cars ready to race in Australia wanting the spot? Stefan hasn’t passed FIA’s mandatory crash tests – they did them at some other company, I’m pretty certain you aren’t allowed to do that. Also, there seems to be no container with spare parts Stefan allegedly sent to Bahrain according to Will Buxton – http://willthef1journo.wordpress.com/2010/02/27/stefangp-will-not-race-in-bahrain/

    How about we open the grid up for 2011, and allow both Stefan and USF1 to compete, as well as other teams who can prove they’re capable (Lola comes to mind)?

    Only 26 cars would be allowed to start, the way it was in the nineties.

  6. 2 more roling chicanes on the grid this year won’t make a difference. Let them build a new car NEXT year, without a double diffuser, and see where they are.

    I despise what USF1 has done, let them sink and let’s see what Mr. Stefanovic has for 2011 after putting him through a proper vetting process.

    USF1 are toast
    FIA/FOTA will not allow Stefan GP to race
    Campos may be on the grid in Bahrain – or may not
    Virgin will fall apart
    Lotus will be far too slow

    Let’s call the whole thing off

    Formula One? I don’t think so

    its a joke all the new team rushed it like this, biger fuel tanks new tyers new drivers not much testing,,hope it will be safe for racing,,

  9. Why not reopen the slot for proposals from all of those who were not chosen (including some very good prospects like Lola), why would Stefan think they should automatically get the slot? While USF1 has definitely not done anything to warrant a place on the grid, has Stefan either? I mean what have they really managed to do? They managed to rent a car and successfully send a package with DHL. Doesn’t F1 have slightly higher standards than that? Isn’t this whole problem because FIA had too lax standards in picking teams? Stefan has leased the car and intellectual property of the car for the 2010 season. If they are granted a slot what happens in 2011? They don’t have the personnel, facilities, or experience to show that they can design and build a car or operate a race team. FIA should either allow in someone (in 2011) that can actually accomplish the task or just not fill the slot. We’ve had enough embarrassment in F1, lets not approve another half-assed entry.

    LOLA, an established race car manufacturer, should have got the nod in my view….

    not some business man who is bored and wants to bank-roll something for a few years….

    USf1 employ 60 people, ferrari and mclaren are over 600 people…., they could never ever compete… it isnt even in the same league…

    this is F1, heck, irl and gp2 teams employ more people than usf0

    what is USF1? so far we’re so nothing from them.Stefan at least showing what they have.Is that sufficient enough for F1 I don’t know,but USF1 are not for f1, that is clear.As for ferrari, if they want three cars or four or five cars why don’t they make ferrari gp race.
