Stefan GP considering a dozen drivers Serbian hopefuls Stefan GP have declared that, having failed to secure a place on this year's starting grid following the non-attendance of US F1, they now hope to make a debut in 2011 and have a list of 12 potential drivers with whom to do so. With US F1 having prevented other teams from entering Formula 1 this year, the last-minute pull-out of the Charlotte-based outfit forced sporting governing body the FIA with no option but to prevent the likes of Stefan from making a debut, not least because no contract has been agreed for a Bridgestone tire supply.
However, the Zoran Stefanovic-owned squad - which purchased 2009 Toyota cars, engines and gearboxes with a hope of joining the 2010 grid - has now announced that (like Epsilon Euskadi and GP2 outfit Durango) it is submitting an entry bid for the 13th and final grid slot, with the following drivers as candidates:
- Jacques Villeneuve; French-Canadian, 1997 World Champion - Narain Karthikeyan; Indian who raced a single season with Jordan in 2005 - Kazuki Nakajima; Japanese driver, competed in full seasons for Williams, 2008-09 - Pastor Maldonado; Venezuelan GP2 driver, recently linked with de la Rosa's seat - Bertrand Baguette; Belgian World Series by Renault Champion, now in IndyCars - Sébastien Loeb; Frenchman, unbeaten to World Rally title since 2004 - Ralf Schumacher; younger brother of Michael, won 6 F1 races and now in DTM - Christian Klien; Austrian, out of F1 drive since being replaced at Red Bull in 2006 - Karun Chandhok; currently competing with Hispania and made debut in Bahrain - Takuma Sato; Japanese driver, raced to F1 podium in 2004, now in IndyCar Series - Adrián Vallés; Superleague Formula Champion, former World Series runner-up - Alex Margaritis; Greek-German, switched from single-seaters to DTM in 2005 GPUpdate.net
