Super Aguri sålt (men kommer till start)

Sticker emellan med en kortis; nu har det släppts officiellt att Super Aguri sålts. Det har ju spekulerats ganska vilt om stallet en bra tid. Nu verkar det i alla fall som att de båda förarna Davidson och Sato fått klart att de faktiskt ska köra säsongen.. Läs mer på gpupdate. Jag fyller på mer info under dagen! [Uppdatering] Nu har DN en nyhet om det, alltid kul att se. Enligt artikeln är Magma Group en brittisk industrikoncern som äger ryska biltillverkaren Gaz och därför vill göra teamet ryskt. Mer lär fortsätta..

  1. det här verkar vara det officiella uttalande som kommit och som flera sidor rapporterar ifrån;
    Aguri Suzuki, Team Principal
    “I am pleased to announce our new partner and drivers finally at this late stage.
    I am looking forward to a successful and long lasting collaboration with Magma Group.
    About Drivers, as I have wanted them to continue their work in our team, I was not worried at all about our drivers for 2008. It will be a big advantage for us that we can continue working with them this year. For Anthony, as this season will be his second as a racing driver, I am expecting him to achieve some points. For Takuma, I would like him to repeat the excellent work he did last season. It will be an interesting season and we will try our best to help them achieve these goals.”

    Takuma Sato
    “I am excited about 2008 and happy to be able to carry the momentum gathered during the past two years into a third season with SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM. Our winter preparation has not been as comprehensive as we had wished; however we always get over these difficulties and keep pushing forward with our fighting spirit. I hope that we can maintain this through the coming season and make up for some lost time. I am looking forward to the coming season – the new rules with no traction control will make race interesting and should be very exciting. I have been training hard all winter and have completed the best preparation I can. As a team we hope that we can have a good race in Melbourne and the rest of the year.”

    Anthony Davidson
    “I’m really looking forward to my second season with the SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM and to building on what we achieved last year. The testing we have been able to do has gone well and we are continuing to make improvements to the car in conjunction with the new MES system. I’ve concentrated on my training and preparation over the winter and I’m fully motivated for the challenges that this year will bring. Everyone in the team has been working hard and I’d like to thank them, and Honda, for the continued support.”

  2. ja det där är lite intressant, för jag läste tidigare i veckan på nån brittisk blogg att magma group egentligen skulle vara brittiska pr-bryån http://www.magmagroup.eu/ och att de liksom hade ansvar för affären på något sätt, åt några andra firmor.
    men nu verkar det vara en rysk grupp det snackas om. inte helt fått klarhet i det där ännu.. oavsett blir det nog formel 1 i ryssland inom en inte allt för avlägsen framtid..
