News about Lopez’s F1 future expected Monday

Feb.22 (GMM) More could be known on Monday about Jose Maria Lopez’s uncertain future in formula one, according to Spanish-language media reports.

The reports, citing “sources close to the” well-funded Argentine driver, said he is investigating his options in the wake of the news that his contracted 2010 employer USF1 is in dire financial strife.

USF1 team principal Ken Anderson acknowledged to the New York Times at the weekend that Lopez will now be “weighing his options”, and the Spanish language reports say the prominent one is a switch to Campos.

The sources reveal that Lopez had a meeting with former USF1 investor Chad Hurley last Friday, strengthening speculation that the YouTube CEO is also looking to jump ship to Campos.

Lopez and his advisers are currently in England awaiting developments.
