Zoran Stefanovich seems to know something that nobody else in F1 does. The Serbian businessman is currently preparing to test his own F1 car and insists that he has already freighted some of the surplus Toyota F1 equipment to Bahrain in preparation for the first race of the season.
Trouble is, as things stand at the moment Stefanovcich has no entry for the 2010 world championship. But he is determined to press ahead with a test at the Portimao circuit in Portugal later this month with former Williams driver Kazuki Nakajima scheduled to be behind the wheel.
Serbia’s first F1 team also seems to have secured the services of former McLaren chief designer Mike Coughlan, who left the Woking team under a cloud of smouldering Ferrari drawings which had illicitly come into his possession and ended up being incinerated in his back garden. But not before a local photocopying shop contacted Ferrari to tell them that his missus had been in making duplicates of many Maranello drawings.
So which team does Mr Stefanovich believe will fail to make it onto the grid this season, thereby making room for the re-branded Toyota squad to join in?
Newcomers Campos,Lotus, Virgin and US F1 maintain they will all be there.
We will keep you posted!
