Prodrive’s McLaren?

And in a further sign of watering down Formula 1, comes speculation that David Richards will simply purchase a “turn-key” F1 chassis from McLaren for Prodrive’s entry into Formula 1 in 2008.

Does this mean future Aston Martin’s will be propelled by MB power units? Or will Richards become the McLaren road car producer? Better look out AMG…

This comes on the heels of Bernie Ecclestone’s “Whipping Boy” and FIA President Max Mosely’s repeated urgings for customer cars in Formula 1. And I assume that this will indeed occur for next season, yet I find it denigrating to the sport of Grand Prix racing…
