US F1 asks to ignore Four opening races



The US F1 team boss Ken Anderson has asked acquiescence for his team to fail to spot the first four races of its entrance season in this season. The team responded to rumors it was facing troubles by insisting we are not gone on Thursday, but Ken has now told the New York Times that US F1 is in economic problem. We’re working with the FIA to illuminate how many races we can miss, he told the news agencies.

Ken Anderson said the Concorde contract allows a team to miss three races per season, but the sport’s governing body newly clarified that doing so would make up an violation of the rules. He said he is to come for a reply from FIA president Jean Todt, said: In an perfect world, we can miss the first four races and show up in Barcelona.

But, Ken Anderson admitted that the FIA might turn down US F1’s request and put the team out of business. I estimate everything likely, he added. However what would be the point of that? Why would they give us a license and just, the first time there’s a bump in the road, yank it and put it out of business? That’s definitely not the message that I’m getting from them. They want to help us, not shut us down.”

He thought a sudden answer from the FIA president would activate funding and we’re good to go. If it takes another week or two to make a decision, it keeps backing up. He also clarified that Jose Maria Lopez remains under contract to race for US F1 in 2010, but did not deny rumors that the Argentine could sign with another team. I’m sure he’s weighing his options as well,” Anderson admitted before denying that You Tube’s Chad Hurley and sporting director Peter Windsor had left the team.
