Richards Set To Launch Prodrive/Aston Martin F1 Entry
Today marks the final day for submitting entires into the F1 World Championship for 2010, and while FOTA’s debates rumble on with uncertainty, David Richards has confirmed a Prodrive entry for the 2010 season.
Richards had a slot for the 2008 season but couldn’t afford to put a car out, this time however he is hoping it will be different with Prodrive badged vehicles for 2010 and 11, before becoming Aston Martin Racing in 2012.
No stranger to F1 experience Richards has managed both Benetton and British American Racing teams.
With next year’s budget cap likely to be 100million Euros, and the following season 45million Euros, it is high time for Richards to prove his worth of entry.
“The cars will be built at Banbury and have Aston Martin-badged customer engines obtained from a supplier,” Richards confirmed to Autocar.
