British driver Anthony Davidson has blamed the local wildlife for costing him a points finish at the Canadian Grand Prix. Davidson was running in third place behind the safety car when a beaver ran across the track. Davidson clipped the animal damaging his front wing. He then came into the pits to the surprise of his team.
“It’s such a shame about the beaver,” Davidson said. “It had it in for me for sure. I couldn’t even see it at high speed and I could not understand why I suddenly locked up the front tyres.”
Super Aguri are happy with the performance of both their drivers, with Takuma Sato finishing sixth. Most impressive was his overtake on current world champion Fernando Alonso. “This was absolutely the most beautiful day in my racing career!” Sato exclaimed.
