F1 - Super Aguri to take flight in 2006

Super Aguri to take flight in 2006.
Tue 01 Nov, 9:21 AM
From Yahoo.com

Honda's much vaunted second team will be on the grid next season, after being confirmed by new team boss Aguri Suzuki at a press conference in Tokyo this morning.

Despite denying that he was to be involved in the project - which Honda announced on the eve of the Japanese Grand Prix last month, Suzuki confirmed that his Super Aguri outfit would be heading up Formula One's eleventh team. Super Aguri Racing is already heavily involved in the Japanese national scene, both in FNippon and Super GT, and recently branched out to join forces with Fernandez Racing in the Indy Racing League.

Suzuki told the assembled media that the team, which was likely to be christened Super Aguri Formula One, still required approval by the FIA before it could take its place on the grid in 2006, but that the project was progressing. The governing body has been made aware of the team's intent to compete, ahead of the 15 November deadline for entries.

"We have cleared all the hurdles we had to clear up to this point," he told reporters at the conference, "Obviously there is a huge amount of work left, but we plan to be on the grid in 2006."

There was no announcement regarding drivers for the new team, although Suzuki did confirm that Takuma Sato, dropped by BAR-Honda at the end of last season, was figuring heavily in his plans. The two had talked about a possible deal, and Sato is expected to ink a deal as soon as it is offered to him. Britons Anthony Davidson - a former BAR test driver - and Dan Wheldon - the Honda-powered IRL champion - are thought to be in contention for the second seat.
