Stefan Grand Prix boss Zoran Stefanovic continued with his plans to enter Formula 1 next season after visiting the ex-Toyota factory in Cologne last week. The Serbian, who is still aiming to have his team ready for 2010 despite not having an entry, traveled to the facilities used by the Japanese squad before its withdrawal from Formula 1.
Stefanovic is aiming to finalize a deal to take over the design of the car Toyota would have used next year. He met with Toyota Motorsport president John Howett as well as with Toyota's executive vice president Yoshiaki Kinoshita and Pascal Vasselon, the former technical chief of the team.
"It was very productive session and further cooperation is detailed," Stefan GP said in a statement. "Obviously impressed with work done in TMG, it was hard for him to keep a smile away." The team said there will be more news to follow in the next weeks.
