McLaren ‘b’ team to wait until 2008 – Wurz

(GMMf1NET) McLaren's prospective 'b' team is likely to wait until 2008 to enter formula one, according to Alexander Wurz.

The Austrian driver may no longer work for the silver team, but he is personally sponsored by 'Direxiv' — the Japanese company that could fund the new squad.

Experienced and technically astute Wurz, 32, would be an ideal pilot for 'Direxiv', while his former Benetton teammate Jean Alesi is tipped to take a leading managerial role.

''In two years' time (2008),'' he told the 'Austria Presse Agentur' (apa) agency, ''a F1 team will cost substantially less to run.

''It would thus make sense to wait.''
