iSport ready to jump to F1

Germany's Motorsports-Magazine.com is reporting that GP2 team owner Paul Jackson is planning to bring his iSport team into Formula 1 if there is a budget cap in 2010.

"I aim to give a few people in F1 a kick up the backside and to show them that they are chucking money out of the window for nothing," he is quoted as saying. "The existing teams aren’t structured to operate within a 30-million budget, so it would probably be better to start with a blank sheet. We’re accustomed to doing a great job on limited resources. It should be the desire for success that brings people into Formula 1; if it’s big money you’re after, then you should be looking somewhere else.

Jackson says he would like to use his former GP2 driver Bruno Senna.

"That would be fantastic," he said. "I’m convinced that he belongs in Formula 1."
