Good news.

Prodrive and David Richards are a success story of British motorsport and would be a very welcome addition to F1

I think he's right about the cost part though.Even teams like Ferrari are going to find it difficult to keep up with the big guys.Another poor year for Ferrari will see to that.

Indeed would be great news IMO and something that could well happen. Prodrive has been making Mr Richards a good ammount of money recently I would imagine both with his sportscar programmes and WRC programmes alike.

Maybe not but Prodrive ARE a success story. Takes a team, not one man.

BAR achieved their best ever results on David's watch.

Good I hope he does come back. Formula1 needs people like David Richards.

I thought he was in the middle of enacting a pretty impressive turn around with Benetton, and was suprised when they dumped him so soon.

However, I read quite a lot about him not doing well there, so, perhaps, I have a poor recollection of it all (the human mind can greatly alter actual events, as it were).

My recollection is the same as yours, Dutton.

David Richards has never been fired from an F1 team.

At Benetton, he presented a restructuring plan to the Benetton family - but they were looking to sell the team rather than invest - so David resigned.

At BAR, Prodrive had been brought in on a management contract and achieved their aims.

If Richards was sacked, his right hand man from Prodrive, Nick Fry, would hardly have been put in charge!

David Richards is a good person which sticks out in the politics of F1.

As I understand it David Richards put forward exactly the same five year plan to Rocco Benetton as he did with Honda and B.A.T. The difference was that Benetton wasn't interested (Thought he knew best when he should have stuck to selling jumpers) where as Honda and B.A.T. were interested.
