Prodrive F1 Team?

11

Ok, Enough already. DR has been touting his new F1 team for some time now. We were thinking of hearing about it around July but no. Now we have a story saying that Prodrive will announce it when they are darn well ready! Seems to me, and what do I know, that DR is having some sponsor issues or lump issues. Perhaps the contracts are getting a little cumbersome at this point. Who knows but…Dave? Get your butt in F1. Now!

I don’t think F1 needs Richards. He treated Villeneuve in a way that I can’t help but think of him as a scumbag. Nuff said. I also don’t think that the field needs to grow. Watching older races with 28 car grids it becomes clear that it causes even more of a mess n the first turn after the start and more lapping of backmarkers, which while it does provide overtaking, it’s not for position and distorts the distance between the leading drivers.

Dave, we already have our Formula1blog eyes on Spyker, don’t even think of buying it!

Yea, my guess is that Prodrive will buy spyker. they are up for sale aren’t they?

Yeah that makes sense… maybe John Stone should look into going halves with DR. At least that way I get to wear blue instead of orange. And as a minority owner I demand a WRX and a date with Petter Solberg.

Grace,

Ms. Solberg has forbad Petter, from listening to the Formula1blog podcast, as he gets very frisky after listening to it…..

I think it’s interesting that both these announcements came out the same day… Pretty fishy….. Prodrive is going to buy Spyker…

It’s way cheaper to buy and existing team, then to build one from scratch, even if it is Spyker.

Just as a side comment, but when Dave started doing all this F1 stuff, isn’t that right around the same time the Subaru WRC team kinda took a nose dive? Could these 2 events be related?
