Team US F1 have confirmed lodging an entry with the FIA to compete in the 2010 Formula One world championship.

Team US F1 have confirmed lodging an entry with the FIA to compete in the 2010 Formula One world championship.

The American outfit, owned by former Ligier technical director Ken Anderson and one-time Williams team manager Peter Windsor, is the second team to announce their intention to run next year.

Of all the potential new teams eager to sign up under the FIA’s £40m (€45.49) budget cap regulation, it is understood Team US F1 are the most far advanced with their project.

A further meeting of the Formula One Teams’ Association is due to take place later today after qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix.

That followed several hours of talks yesterday between them and later with FIA president Max Mosley as they seek a resolution to the current crisis rocking the sport.

It is understood the teams and the FIA are drawing closer to a solution, with the clock counting down to the May 29 deadline for entries.

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo again confirmed yesterday his team would pull out of F1 unless there was an amendment to the cap regulation as it stands because of fears of it leading to a two-tier championship.

Asked today whether the situation was close to being resolved, F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone joked: “No. Just a lot of mineral water being drunk, that’s all.”
