According to RaceFans.net, Formula One caravans could be joined in the season 2021 by a new F1 team to be named Panther.
Panthera Team Asia F1 is headquartered near Silverstone and co-founded by former WEC SMP Racing and BR Engineering Engineering Benjamin Durand.
In the meantime, Panthera has already started to find the necessary staff, and the team already has the positions of Technical and Sports Director. The head of aerodynamics of the new team is Tim Milne, who has previously worked in teams of Renault, Honda, Super Aguri, Toyota, Caterham and most recently Manor.
The new F1 team is expected to follow the model of the Haas team, which purchases most of its parts from an external supplier. The Panthera Team Asia F1 could debut in Formula One this season 2021 when the new FIE rules come into force, with team executives expected to submit an application to join the Formula One Championships early next year
