Campos Meta team principal Colin Kolles (left) is confident that his outfit will be ready for the start of the season, despite the recent struggles it has faced.
Kolles has been drafted in after a shareholding takeover by Jose Ramon Carabante, and he has the task of getting the team on track in just two weeks, Although time is tight, Kolles is upbeat that the staff he has put in place will ensure the Dallara-built car is ready in time for the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix.
"It is very tough, but we will make it – because I never give up," Kolles told AUTOSPORT. "We will have the cars in Bahrain and we will be running. This in itself will be pretty much a big achievement."
Former BAR and Red Bull Racing technical chief Geoff Willis is helping the team with its preparations for 2010, and it is believed his current consultancy role could be turned into a full-time appointment.
Kolles has said that he expects to make an announcement about the team's driver lineup within the next week – with sources suggesting that Bruno Senna's deal at the outfit is no longer guaranteed. AUTOSPORT reports that Senna has been asked to bring sponsorship money to the outfit to keep hold of his place.
Karun Chandhok has been strongly linked with a deal there, while US F1's Jose Maria Lopez has also been in talks with Campos, too, according to his manager.
The future of Campos founder Adrian Campos is also unclear. It is believed that he has been offered a role at the team, but there is no guarantee a deal will happen.
"I did what I had to do for the best of the team," Campos told AUTOSPORT. "That was the most important thing for me."
