Rick Weidinger's A1 Team USA is still to announce its full plans for the coming season but the team has now listed three drivers who will be involved in the testing programme and it is interesting to note that all three of them are Red Bull drivers (at least at the moment). The men listed on the team website are Scott Speed, Colin Fleming and Matt Jaskol. Weidinger has also signed up IRL racer Scott Sharp to act as an advisor and consultant for the team.

"We intend to field a team of the finest drivers and racing crews as we compete on behalf of the United States," Weidinger says. "But at the same time, we fully recognize the important role of international sportsmanship, cooperation and goodwill among nations that are the fundamental essence of A1 Grand Prix."

This presumably means that an international sponsor like Red Bull could be on the cards.
