Super Aguri Saved?

According to the latest rumours, Super Aguri have been saved by a mystery investor.

The German magazine Auto Motor und Sport has claimed that a consortium consisting of a British company and Middle Eastern sponsor have reached a deal with the Formula 1 team. The deal would see current owner Aguri Suzuki relinquish his 100% stake in the team, but he would still remain as the team boss and the team s name would remain unchanged.

The deal would mean good news for both drivers as it is believed if the deal goes ahead, Takuma Sato has been promised a drive for the next two seasons, with Anthony Davidson promised a drive for the 2008 season. Honda are also thought to be remaining as Super Aguri s chassis and engine partner. It is understood that the deal will be confirmed later on in the week.

Super Aguri look set to be starting the 2008 season with a hybrid car with last season s RA107 melded with the rear end of the 2008 Honda. It is hoped that the RA108 will be available to Super Aguri for racing later in the season.
