New F1 teams on road to F1 – Bernie

(GMMf1NET) A wave of new formula one teams is marching towards the grid, according to Bernie Ecclestone.

Although quiet at present, the 75-year-old F1 supremo promised to tell the racing world more about it later in the 2006 season.

''At the European grand prix (May 5-7) we will know a little more,'' Bernie told the 'Kicker' sports magazine.

He said: ''It should be a good year. We have a much better qualifying system and soon we should have a few new teams.''

Names including David Richards, Roger Penske, Gerhard Berger, Misato Haga, Eddie Jordan, and even Michael Schumacher, have been mentioned in relation to 2008's more favorable rules for private teams.
