Stefan GP boss Zoran Stefanovic’s confidence is growing!

The Belgrade-based team boss is increasingly hopeful that his team will be on the grid for the season-opening Bahrain GP in just over two weeks’ time, with the ongoing struggles of USF1 being more than well-documented.

"Definitely, we are waiting for something to happen because the time is very short and the deadline for Bahrain is approaching," he explained to Reuters. "If you are going to Bahrain, you have to be packed by next Wednesday and we think we will be able to reach something by then."

Bar reaching approval with the FIA to compete, it appears that signing the team’s second driver is all that is required for the team. With Williams outcast Kazuki Nakajima having already been confirmed (no doubt helped by his, and the team’s, close relationship with Toyota), all roads seem to be leading to former champion Jacques Villeneuve, who is the most likely candidate for the second drive.

"It’s not happened yet but everything except his signature had been done," Zoran continued. "Probably in the next two or three days we will be reaching some sort of agreement."
