Lyons looks at F1

Richard Lyons, the current leader of the Formula Nippon Championship in Japan, was in the paddock in Hungary, talking to teams about possible jobs in 2005. Lyons met with as many as eight different F1 teams.

"In a few weeks there will be decisions being taken for at least an F1 test," Lyons said. "For the people who are interested the facts speak for themselves in Japan and the Formula 1 driver market is the most open it has ever been."

Lyons has been racing in Japan for the last four seasons.
