Mexico City: Force India boss Vijay Mallya on Friday confirmed media reports that his team are discussing a rebranding title sponsorship deal with Aston Martin.
In a news conference at the Mexican Grand Prix, Mallya was asked about the prospect of the Silverstone outfit being renamed as Aston Martin Racing, a move that would see the British car-maker return to F1 for the first time since 1960.
He said: "It's premature to say anything has been done. We have many options and I will be able to confirm or otherwise when I have something to say. Nothing is done until it is done and I don't like to count my chickens before they are hatched."
Aston Martin is reported to wish to enter Formula One to compete against its sportscar-manufacturing rivals Ferrari and McLaren. Aston Martin has discussed a return to F1 with Red Bull and Williams before switching to Force India.
