Albers likely to stay at ‘MF1’

(GMMf1NET) Christijan Albers' future at 'MF1' appears secure, with team principal Colin Kolles reporting that he is 'happy with our current drivers'.

The chief, however, made special mention of Albers, the 27-year-old Dutchman who is the 2006 teammate for incumbent Tiago Monteiro.

''I think he is one of the strongest drivers in the pit lane,'' Kolles told

''Give him a proper car and he will win races.''

The Midland-owned squad's boss admitted that he is presently talking over the renewal of Albers' single-year contract with manager Lodewijk Varossieau.

Colin Kolles insisted: ''We definitely want to keep him for 2007 if he keeps his current performance level.''

The current problem at Silverstone-based MF1, however, is the car's lack of performance, and constant speculation of owner Alex Shnaider's reluctance to offer a competitive annual budget.

But Kolles said the team is 'working hard' to bridge the gap to rivals.

He added: ''And I am more determined than ever to drive us forward, toward the sharp end of the grid.''
