Stefan GP is pushing to secure a fourteenth team entry for the 2010 season, boss Zoran Stefanovic has confirmed.

It has been reported that the Serbian outfit, not yet a feature of this year's official entry list, is hoping to be counted among the maximum 13 teams by waiting for beleaguered Campos or USF1 to drop out.

But FIA president Jean Todt warned recently that no team would necessarily gain automatic entry should the number of competitors diminish.

Like Stefan, Sauber pushed to become F1's 14th team late last season, but ultimately only achieved an official entry after Toyota pulled out of the sport.

Stefanovic is quoted by the British newspaper The Sun as confirming that he wants the FIA to open up an entirely new slot on the 2010 grid.

"We think this is the best way to solve the problem," he said.

"We are absolutely aware that the system of granting entries is through the FIA. So we are not expecting someone to give us an entry immediately," he added.

Stefanovic revealed that, even though some equipment has been sent in advance to the early venues on the 2010 calendar, staff and the actual cars will only follow if an official entry is granted.
