A spokesman for Sauber is confident the Swiss team will be granted the thirteenth official entry on the 2010 grid.

It has been suggested that Toyota, a signatory of the 2010 Concorde Agreement while Sauber is not, will hand over its entry to the little-known Serbian outfit Stefan GP.

But the latest rumour is that the FIA is actually leaning towards refusing the Stefan solution in favour of allowing Sauber, whose team has been a continuous presence in F1 since its debut in 1993, to keep racing.

"So far 12 teams have been announced. We are confident that we will be the thirteenth and that we will soon receive confirmation," a Sauber spokesman is quoted as saying by the German news agency DPA.

The 13th team's drivers will be assigned the race numbers 26 and 27.
