2010 F1 Team floodgates to open?

As the speculation continues to swirl over the apparent rush of potential new contenders for the supposed three open grid slots up for grabs for the 2010 Formula 1 World Championship... Much fuss has been made over the fact that this bonanza is being fed by the proposed $30m (Euro) Budget Cap Formulae desired by MAD Max Mosley... Of which it’s now reported that Driver’s salaries will not be included in the budget restrictions...

And thus, as USGPE is already known to be on the grid for 2010, this supposedly leaves just two open slots of which now David Richards is rumoured to be considering bringing Aston Martin onboard, while Lola has just announced they plan to do a feasibility study... While there also is scuttlebutt over various GP2 teams being interested in moving up the ranks... So, we’ll see and so much for a budget crisis, eh?
