Lopez's manager says USF1 working on Bahrain debut
(GMM)  Jose Maria Lopez's manager has admitted the possibility that USF1 might not make its formula one debut in Bahrain next month.

With also Campos and possibly Lotus similarly struggling ahead of their debut F1 seasons, it emerged this week that they can miss up to three races in 2010 without penalty.

"For now the team is still working normally because the idea is to be in Bahrain," confirmed team driver Lopez's manager Felipe McGough, according to the newspaper El Diario Hoy.

He said USF1's car will undergo official crash tests in England next week.

"I don't know.  Maybe if the crash test will present problems, the team will begin to analyze the possibility of postponing the debut, but for now there is nothing (to indicate this) and work continues for the race in Bahrain," McGough added.

Also rumored is that Campos' car constructor Dallara, believed to be already talking with Stefan GP about a deal, may also have commenced negotiations with USF1, at the behest of team sponsor Chad Hurley.

Dallara's chief executive Andrea Pontremoli told motorsport-total.com: "We are talking with several people.  I cannot say more."
