Purchasing a multi-million dollar automaker is a good excuse for not being able to concentrate on other matters, but according to Prodrive's team boss, David Richards, the 2008 Prodrive F1 team is, "perfectly on target."

Richards, who is currently in Bahrain after a business trip to Kuwait, took a few minutes to talk to reporters about the future of Prodrive's F1 efforts and the possibility of running an Aston Martin team in the future.

In short, Richards was mum on drivers, but confirmation about Prodrive's pilots, suppliers and sponsors is due during the British GP in Silverstone. The rumors of late include an engine and chassis provided by Ferrari, McLaren or Renault.

As for an Aston Martin team, Richards downplayed the idea, but gave the impression that something may come to fruition in the future.
