Spyker MF1 RacingAs reported on autosport.com

The Spyker F1 team have added Trust to their sponsor portfolio for the 2007 Formula One season. Trust returns to Formula One three years after its last F1 partnership with the Jordan team, later renamed Midland before Spyker took over. The Dutch brand, manufacturers of portable peripherals, entered Formula One with Jos Verstappen and the Minardi team in 2003. The company’s logo will appear on the 2007 cars and drivers.

“The comeback of Trust in F1 is a major victory for Spyker F1 Team. I am really proud that the Trust brand name will be on our racecars in the years to come.” said Michiel Mol, Spyker’s director of Formula One.

Although it was thought that Prodrive had secured the final slot to enter the sport when the new Concorde Agreement comes into operation in two years time, it now appears that might not be the case.

Indeed Crash.net has learned that the project being headed up by former F1 racer, Jean Alesi and backed by Japanese luxury good company Direxiv, may be in the frame to get the nod this Friday, when the FIA, the sport’s governing body, is due to confirm which team will join the current established eleven in the sport.

A number of the other entries have already been turned down, including Paul Stoddart’s bid to re-enter the sport with Minardi, despite having sold out to Red Bull only at the end of last season.

Well, the roumer mills are working overtime regarding the 12th team. Come friday, the real name will be revealed.

“I’ve lodged myself an entry as European Minardi F1 team Limited,” said the Australian aviation entrepreneur.

“We’ll see what happens. It might not happen but I miss F1 too badly at the moment. I might not get a slot but it will be interesting to see who does.”
