Prodrive disappointed to lose out

Prodrive disappointed to lose out
Richards still expecting a few twists in the saga

Richards notes the 'preliminary entry list'
As it stands, just three new teams have been granted placed on the 26 car grid for next season with Campos Grand Prix, Manor Grand Prix and Team US F1 getting the nod today from the FIA.

Prodrive, headed by former Benetton and BAR Team Principal David Richards, had been amongst the favourites to join the Grand Prix circus next season, but his team has not made the so-called FIA 'entry list'.

"We are naturally disappointed by the FIA's decision not to include Prodrive in the preliminary entry list for 2010," stated Richards. "We believe we have the resources and set-up to be competitive in Formula One and would make a positive contribution to the sport."

Prodrive, along with Lola, Brabham, March and a plethora of other F1 hopefuls are not giving up hope however as the 'entry list' contains certain caveats that could see teams not participating in the championship.

“We will wait to see how things develop in the next week, up to the 19th June deadline set by the FIA and we remain prepared and ready to implement our plans should the circumstances allow," Richards continued. "As we have seen before, there are quite often many twists and turns in Formula One.”

His team is now focused on its Le Mans challenge with Lola Aston Martin.
