Have USF1 signed there first Driver?

by F1Fan on November 22, 2009

By some accounts Argentine driver Jose Maria Lopez has reportedly signed to race with the USF1 team in 2010.

Apparently the drive is conditional upon Lopez a 26-year-old former GP2 driver, who has recently been racing in his country’s touring car championship, completing an $8m sponsorship package.

It seems odd that USF1 may have fallen foul of the very thing that Peter Windsor said they wanted to avoid, signing a Driver just because he can bring a lot of money to the team.

However as there are currently no American Drivers with the required racing Super license, I guess that lets them off the hook, but wait, it is highly unlikely that Lopez has a super license either so maybe Peter Windsor was actually talking out of the both sides of his mouth.

If this rumor is true, then surely USF1 will be looking for a driver with a little more experience in Formula 1, someone like Villenueve or Trulli, that could really help the team with development of the new Car.
