USF1 co-founder Peter Windsor has rubbished suggestions that his team is trying to terminate its contract with engine supplier Cosworth.

Reports in the German press mentioned the rumour last week, amid speculation the new American team’s sporting director believes switching to Toyota power would be a better option.

However, it has also been suggested that USF1 is trying to cancel contracts in anticipation of failing to make it to the 2010 grid. Is this the more likely scenario?

"The rumours are not true, I’m afraid," Windsor told the GPWeek magazine. "We are fully committed to Cosworth – which is why we are delighted to have Bernard Ferguson [Cosworth’s former director of motorsport] working for us."
