Ferrari not softening its stance

Ferrari’s decision to conditionally apply for the 2010 season does not mean it is accepting a budget cap. ANY budget cap.

“Making the 2009 regulations the starting point means there will be no budget cap," the BBC quotes Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali.

Should the nine FOTA teams’ (minus Williams) conditions not be met?

“If the conditions are not met, the entries will be invalid.”

The FIA has yet to comment on the conditional entries. The organization is set to publish an official entry list June 12.

FOTA will have to tread lightly, as the list of teams applying for the limited 13 slots has again swelled.

According to AUTOSPORT, an Alex Wurz-led entry has officially joined the list.

Called Team Superfund, Wurz would be the principal, the money is coming from Austrian Christian Baha, founder and owner of investment company Superfund.

Apparently, the team is in the advanced planning stages, and is aiming to use Cosworth power.

Williams, Prodrive, USF1, Campos, Litespeed and Lola are the other, “unconditional” entries.
