Tony Teixeira, with Felipe Massa
A1GP boss Tony Teixeira has been linked with a deal to buy a share in the new Campos team, as the team are currently looking to bring in outside investors.
Campos is currently on track to enter the grid in Bahrain, with 1 driver signed, and the car nearly finished, although it may not make the first test in Valencia. However, not enough sponsorship deals have been signed yet, so the team are currently looking at alternate revenue sources. One of these would be getting an outside investor.
Teixeira has been involved in rumours like this before, having interested in the buyout of the Honda team in February 2009. Back then, he said in an interview:
“I was one of the guys talking to Honda in the last two weeks. We had done a deal on Spyker, but I let Vijay [Mallya] take it… We then went to Toro Rosso in November and all the [other] teams said ‘no customer cars’ so I had to walk away.”
