Spyker is hoping to accelerate its plans to debut a ‘b’ version of its current F8-VII formula one car later this year.

After originally targeting a debut at the Turkish grand prix in late August, it is now believed that Silverstone based Spyker wants to race the Mike Gascoyne-devised update as soon as the Nurburgring in July.

Team boss Colin Kolles ordered the hurry-up following the realisation that closest rivals and fellow backmarkers Toro Rosso and Super Aguri are more competitive than the Dutch team in 2007, according to the magazine Formule 1 Race Report.

Kolles said: “At the next race in Spain we have a small update; a bigger one is coming for Monaco and then in Germany we want to drive with the new car.”
