With the news that Ferrari have been brought in to supply engines to the A1GP series, A1GP boss Tony Teixeira is now keen to get in on the Formula 1 action by buying an F1 team.
“I am looking around. I have been speaking to two or three different teams that are maybe available for sale,â€ he explained. “If I find the right deal that makes sense and it s the right price and I think that I can get up to the top 10 positions in F1 I m not going to do it to come last then I will conclude a deal.â€
Toro Rosso are one possibility having shown a definite improvement in pace over the past few races. “Toro Rosso are one of them,â€ Teixeira confirmed. “I want to be as close to the pinnacle of motor sport as I can. We don t want to be playing with it if I do get involved with an F1 team, it will be as an insider to what is happening.â€
