LONDON. England - F1 could have not one, but two new teams in 2015.

Italy's Autosprint reports that, in Paris earlier in February, the FIA began the official evaluation process after inviting expressions of interest in filling the pits lane vacancy created by HRT's demise.

TWO VACANCIES

But correspondent Roberto Chinchero reports that there are, in fact, two team vacancies on the grid at present. Chinchero said: "There is no official information but rumours are beginning that the doors to F1 could open for two teams."

The candidature of Nascar team co-owner Gene Haas is well known but Autosprint said the other successful applicant could be the former Force India and HRT team chief Colin Kolles.

Italy's Omnicorse reports that a third applicant, Serbian Zoran Stefanovic who tried and failed to enter a team a few years ago, has "little hope" for 2015.

The FIA's decision will be announced at the end of February 2014.
