Haas to meet FIA bosses over 2015 F1 entry

It's becoming more and more likely that a NASCAR owner could enter F1.

Feb.24 (GMM) F1's potential next F1 chief, Californian and NASCAR team co-owner Gene Haas, will travel to Europe this week.

Foreign language reports said that during coverage of the Daytona 500, Fox Sports revealed that Haas is scheduled to meet with representatives of F1's governing FIA.

Earlier, Haas responded to the FIA's invitation to fill the vacant F1 team slot in 2015, and reportedly met the full application deadline of February 10.

This week, the 2015 team selection process is reaching an even more serious stage, when it is believed Haas will formally present his plans and proposed budget to the FIA.

The Paris-based federation is expected to announce its decision by the end of the week.
