Two addition F1 teams a possibility

According to reports in the Italian media, Formula One could have not one, but two new teams on the grid in 2015.

Italian publication Autosprint reports that the FIA begin the official evaluation process in Paris last week after inviting expressions of interest earlier this year in filling the spot on the grid left vacant following the fall of HRT at the end of the 2012 season.

Autosprint's Formula One correspondent Roberto Chinchero reports, however, that the FIA are considering adding an additional team to the roster.

"There is no official information but rumours are beginning that the doors to F1 could open for two teams," Chinchero.

The interest of Gene Haas, co-owner of Nascar outfit Stewart-Haas Racing, is well-known, but Autosprint reports that the other interested party is none other than former HRT Team Principal Colin Kolles.

Kolles initially replaced HRT founder Adrián Campos at the now-defunct team before resigning from his position before their disastrous final season the next year.

Another Italian publication, Omnicorse, claims that another interested party - Zoran Stefanovic - exists.

Stefanovic submitted a failed application for a spot on the grid for his Stefan Grand Prix team in 2009, but Omnicorse reports that the Serb has "little hope" for next year.

The FIA are expected to announce their decision regarding possible additions to the grid for the 2015 season at the end of the month.
