Campos: We are working very hard

7 February 2010 – Adrián Campos stresses that his team is working as hard as possible as rumours continue to circulate surrounding the future of the Madrid-based squad. The outfit, which plans to make the step up to Formula 1 from GP2 for this season, is one of the sport's four new teams for 2010.

With Virgin Racing all set to test its car for the first time at Jerez this week and fellow debutants Lotus poised to repeat the feat at the same venue a week later, gossip continues to declare that Campos and US F1 may not be on Bahrain's starting grid for the opening race of the new season next month.

Campos has already signed Brazilian Bruno Senna as the team's first driver
"We are trying to have everything solved by Monday and people are saying a lot of stupid things - some are true and some are not," team owner Campos explained to BBC Sport. "We are working very hard to be in Bahrain."

The team is believed to be in talks with South African businessman Tony Teixeira, the name behind the currently postponed A1 Grand Prix championship, although Campos admits that not all details can be revealed.

"The problem is that we have confidentiality clauses in everything we are doing," he continued, before denying hearsay that car constructors Dallara have pulled the plug on the project due to a string of unpaid overheads.

"Sometimes we pay the seven millions euros to Dallara and sometimes we don't have the money - we are trying to solve the problem," the Spaniard - a former F1 driver - added, noting that Dallara cannot switch to the expectant Stefan GP team due to contractual obligations.
