Stefan GP, which still holds ambitions of making the 2010 F1 grid, has confirmed it is receiving technical support from Toyota. The Serbian team has already bought the team’s 2010 chassis, engine and gearbox from the now-closed Japanese constructor.
With Toyota’s departure being announced just three days after the season-closing race at Abu Dhabi, it later sold on various componentry to Stefan GP, founded by Zoran Stefanovic.
"Stefan GP has just come to a basic agreement with Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG) that Stefan GP will receive technical supports from TMG," a statement said.
With rumours still doing the rounds that the futures of debutant teams, USF1 and Campos, are looking shaky, Stefan GP is still hoping that it might stand a chance of joining the 2010 field. Failing that, it will test its car during the 2010 season.
