The latest name linked with the hopeful American outfit Cypher Group is Nelson Piquet Jr.
22-year-old Indy Lights driver Jonathan Summerton has already confirmed he is working with the team to form “the American F1 team with an American driver”.
Italiaracing.net reports that Piquet, the Brazilian and crashgate conspirator, is also being linked with Cypher.
Since being ousted by Renault mid last season, the 24-year-old has been racing mainly in NASCAR’s lower-tier truck series.
It is also reported that Cypher has recruited Steve Brown, the former Brawn GP research and development engineer who switched to the abortive USF1 last year.
