Davidson looks to the future at Autosport International

Former Super Aguri and BAR driver Anthony Davidson talked about life post-Honda at Autosport International, but hinted that a return to competition is still possible. Speaking to the gathered crowd at the Autosport Stage, the British driver explained the effect of Super Aguri and Honda s withdrawal from Formula 1.

“Super Aguri were a fantastic team to work for, full of really talented people. I think it was a telltale sign of things to come at Honda. The Japanese are great people to work with, and I know they ll be feeling this, as it s hard to walk away before winning a world championship.”

Davidson was only a few weeks away from signing a deal with Honda when the firm s F1 exploits were cancelled. “If nothing else, the last year has given me the chance to work with Ross Brawn, I ve been extremely privileged to work with him. It was a massive shock, and now I m in the same situation as Button. Somebody will buy the company; you rarely come across a team of similar stature.

“You should never give up but I m a realist, an F1 drive is now looking slim for me. I ve raced all kinds of cars, including Le Mans before, and it s a race I ve got my eye on. Hopefully I can also do more Radio 5 Live commentary work.”
