USF1 petitions the FIA for a 1-year delay to enter the F1 World Championship – Click above to watch video after the jump

SpeedTV reports that things are not entirely amiss at USF1, the team just needs to rearrange some things a bit. After failing in its bid to get a car to the first race, then asking to skip to first four races, then being unable to merge with either Campos Meta or Stefan GP, what the team now wants is dispensation from the FIA to miss the entire 2010 season and pick up at the first race of 2011.

YouTube founder and team partner Chad Hurley is in on the request, and has promised to put up a seven-figure sum as bond if the FIA accedes. We're all for USF1 getting on the grid, but if they can't get a car on the track this year then who's footing the bill to develop a car but not race this year then run next year? Follow the jump for a video on the latest reports. Thanks for the tip, Tom!
