NASCAR team owner Gene Haas is behind an attempt to gain an Formula One entry for 2015.

On Dec. 11, the FIA announced a formal tender process, with a very short lead time, suggesting that interested parties had already been in contact. Late last year, there were rumors of a potential F1 project in the U.S.

The deadline for expressions of interest was Jan. 3, with Feb. 10 noted as the closing of full formal applications. Bernie Ecclestone said this week that he had been in contact with two candidates.

"We have responded to the FIA’s ‘call for expression of interest’ regarding a Formula One entry on behalf of Haas Racing Development," Haas said in a statement released by his team. "We respect the FIA’s evaluation process and will share more details in the coming weeks.”
