Formula 1 gossip and rumours from international media

BBC Sport brings you a regular round-up of the gossip in newspapers and on specialist websites around the world.

Campos have engines! Cosworth delivered to Dallara, which is building the car for new team Campos, on Friday yesterday. Shakedown may be in Bahrain. Told Lopez for Senna. Nobody confirming. Money talks. Senna could lose out if Lopez can produce more. Told US F1 still aiming for grid in 2010. No date, though. Can't see it.

Former world champion Jacques Villeneuve is set to have a seat fitting in Stefan GP's car in Cologne on Monday. Team boss Zoran Stefanovic has said that the 1997 world champion is close to a deal with the Serbian squad, which continues to push for a place in the 2010 Formula 1 field.

Stefan GP would like to re-confirm its desire and, importantly, its ability to compete in the whole of the FIA 2010 Formula 1 World Championship. It recognises that this can only happen with the consent of the FIA and the FOM, but has faith that the Formula 1 'family' will make the correct decision in the end. There will be no more press releases on this subject and we look forward to being allowed to show everyone our team in Bahrain.
