Richards has enough problems downhere with Ford
Performance Racing (FPR) who are under performing
with Ford asking questions.

The Series is ready to go international and FPR are the factory team for Ford.

Dave Richards would never attempt a project unless he has sufficient funding in place - he's been around too long to risk his company and reputation just to make up the numbers in F1. It's right for him to wait till the time is right. it's not just a matter of being cautious, but being professional as well!

Dave Richard will never be right for a return to F1.
Bernie will never permit this seedy nefarious prevaricator get anywhere near owning or managing any team in F1. We remember that underhanded, deceptive stunt you pulled at the GP of Japan. Honda (fired) dismissed you quickly. From that day you will never have a future in F1, Never. For you the time will never be right, true colors baby, I (really) hope and believe that you would do the honorable thing and just go away, disappear. Snidely Whiplash would describe you as a "stupid beast of burden"...
Man can you believe this Dude!!

Kiko you are a little short on Mr. David Richards
history in F1 a real reprehensible dude. He did a
real job on the Honda owners. Honda had offered JV a position with the team long b4 the Japan GP. Mr. Wonderful Dave dismissed JV b4 the start of the race. JV's pride was hurt, he quit, Honda was really pissed, summoned Mr. Wonderful to Japan and gave him his walking papers..Hit the road Jack!!
Bernie and powers in F1 were enraged..Never again David.
richard, I liked that extra fuel tank, real chutzpa,
talking about balls..Forget about all THIS Crash talk about old Dave....The man has been excommunicated!!

akthough the BAR did have a fuel reserve it was proven that it was NEVER used. the FIA rightly charged them with the rule infringement. BAR were embarassed as was Jens (who claimed to know nothing about it)
