(GMMF1.NET) Former BAR-Honda chief David Richards has ruled out a quick return to the F1 pitwall. The Englishman vowed to spend 2005 on company Prodrive's fledgling Aston Martin (Le Mans) project. But, asked if he pined for the Paddock, DR replied: ''It wouldn't be the right thing to do, to return (to F1) immediately, anyway. I won't mind observing from a distance for now, not at all.'' 52-year-old Richards, overthrown by Honda, admitted that – having guided BAR from over-cashed nearlymen to Ferrari runner-up – he ended '04 'burned out. ''Only now … can I feel the enthusiasm coming back,'' he remarked.
