USF1 to Be Unveiled on February 24

The all-American USF1 team that is to debut in Formula 1 next year (most likely) will be officially launched on February 24th. The announcement was made by part-owner Peter Windsor in an interview for American television channel SPEED. Currently a pit lane reporter of the aforementioned broadcaster's F1 program, Windsor revealed that the team will most likely be introduced to the North American fans in 8-days time.

While announcing the launch – that is to take place at 8 am E.T. – Windsor also admitted that he and partner Ken Anderson have been working on an F1 project for the past 4 years. It so happens that someone finally found out about the USF1 project and revealed it to the media a few weeks before the official announcement.

“Ken Anderson and I have been looking at the possibility of designing and building an F1 car in the USA for the past four years. So I guess the real surprise is that we were able to keep it quiet for so long. The news broke this week but the real announcement is going to be live on SPEED, potentially on February 24,” announced Windsor on

The information about USF1's potential base in North Carolina have not been officially confirmed, but the fact that team's launch time is set for the Eastern time zone could represent another hint in that direction. Also, the team owners are yet to announce whether their team will use an alternative base in Europe – near Bilbao, Spain, as it emerged recently – or simply stick to a sole North-American headquarters.

Also, Windsor did not reveal any information concerning the new team's driver lineup, nor when they plan to make their debut in the Formula 1 series. Anderson had recently revealed that the team was only considering US drivers for the job, with the team already in talks with one particular (yet unknown) driver at the time.
