F1 : Campos will make it to the grid


After gaining an entry spot on the grid for the 2010 Formula 1 season, the Campos Meta 1 team has been strugglng financially. And while doubts continue to circulate about whether or not the team will make it to the season opener in Bahrain, the team is set to get a new lifeline. Majority owner of the team, Jose Ramon Carabante, is on the brink of buying out the team from the founder Adrian Campos. Carabante is currently trying to ensure that the Campos team does indeed make it to the grid.

The team has as yet confirmed only one driver, Bruno Senna, but other drivers linked to the second seat at Campos are Karun Chandhok and Betrand Baguette.

Carabante has roped in ex-Force India team principal Colin Kolles and ex-Red Bull technical director Geoff Willis.

The team is not likely to be ready in time for the final test session at Barcelona, which means that the cars will only have a shakedown before the first race at Bahrain. There is also the possibility that the cars might miss early rounds, post the Bahrain season opener.
