Aston Martin to Compete in Formula 1?

With spring approaching, so is the start of Daniel's favourite sport, Formula 1. When the successful Michael Schumacher is no longer competing and the reigning champion Fernando Alonso drives another car than last year, nobody can be sure who is a favourite to win this years championship. This makes it all the more interesting.

There are rumors that possible new owners of the British sports car manufacturer Aston Martin will compete in Forumla 1 in 2008 under the name Aston Martin. Daniel thinks this would be great, since Aston Martin is a classic car with a lot of history in racing. The possible new owner is the company Prodrive, which is already due to compete in Formula 1 next year. Prodrive is, however, not a classic name and most people would probably rather have an Aston Martin than a car called Prodrive in their garage. It would thus benefit Prodrive to use the name Aston Martin for their Formula 1 cars. Let's hope they do.
