Four teams want Cosworth power in 2010

Four teams have reportedly paid the necessary deposit to reserve a supply of Cosworth's customer Formula One engine for 2010.

Accompanying the sport's lower-cost future, the independent British company is set to return to F1 next year at the initiative of the FIA, guaranteeing a low-cost engine amid quit threats of engine makers that are currently involved.

Peter Windsor, the British journalist behind the USF1 team, confirmed at Monaco that accompanying a team's official 2010 entry must be an arrangement for an engine supplier.

He said USF1 has indeed done a deal with Cosworth, and Germany's Auto Motor und Sport claims that the arrangement must have involved the transfer of 2.5 million euros.


The publication said three other potential 2010 entrants have also paid the Cosworth deposit, including probably Campos Racing and Joan Villadelprat's Epsilon Euskadi.

"It is true that we are trying (to set up a F1 team)," Villadelprat confirmed to the Spanish newspaper El Pais. "At the moment I would say the chances of the project coming to fruition is 50 per cent."

So does this mean that the rule restricting engine suppliers to selling engines to only 2 teams has been rescinded? I know McLaren got away with it because it was the only way to get Brawn on the grid so maybe the rule was already dropped?

I was thinking the same thing, or they excluded that rule in the book for 2010 to be able to allow more low-cost teams in.

What other teams are looking at Cosworth powerplants?
