Stefan GP not on FIA 2010 entry list

Stefan GP’s bid to enter the 2010 F1 world championship appears to have failed, as the team does not appear on the FIA’s entry list for 2010.

With only 8 days until practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix, Stefan GP were hoping that they could take the place of the fallen USF1 team. However, they do not appear in the new entry list, which is the final one before the season starts.

Also, this is the first time that Sauber have appeared on the entry list, as the list had not been updated recently until now. Campos Meta now appears as HRT Cosworth, while Bruno Senna is still listed as the only driver for the team.

The FIA has made the following statement:

"The USF1 Team have indicated that they will not be in a position to 
participate in the 2010 FIA Formula One World Championship. Having 
considered the various options, the FIA confirms that it is not 
possible for a replacement team to be entered for the Championship 
at this late stage.

In the coming days the FIA will announce details of a new selection 
process to identify candidates to fill any vacancies existing at the 
start of the 2011 season."

This means that, instead of now, they will wait until 2011 to look at accepting a new team to fill USF1’s shoes, which may include Stefan GP.

    That is not fair on Stefan. They wait for US F1 to pull out, and just as they are going to get their foot in the door, its slammed in their face.
