Asiatech confirms F1 dream
The company is ideally placed to take over the Prost facilities in Paris by the team principals Gano and engineer Enrique Scalabroni are of the opinion that the team should be based in Britain, even if the engine department remains in France. The organization does have a British base, in the old Williams factory in Didcot.
If the team wishes to enter F1 next year it will have to put together a dossier and pay a $48m deposit to the FIA in November. Asiatech's backers, a mysterious consortium of Asian businessmen, has not really made it clear what it intends to do with an F1 team.
