Honda to help out of work Super Aguri racers

Sat, 10 May 2008, 11:27

F1 team Honda’s CEO Nick Fry on Saturday said the outfit has not yet decided how to support the drivers Anthony Davidson and Takuma Sato following the collapse of the satellite team Super Aguri.

“It’s something that we are thinking about at the moment,” he told Reuters at Istanbul Park, scene of the Turkish grand prix.

Both Sato and Davidson have had either test or racing roles with the Brackley based operation in the past.

Fry said Honda “will help” the duo “if we can”, now that they are out of work.

“But there’s nothing planned at the moment,” he warned.

Fry also defended himself amid accusations that he was instrumental in Super Aguri’s collapse, but said he understands former team boss and owner Aguri Suzuki’s emotion when commenting in the immediate aftermath.

“To be fair to him, he’d just announced to the world that he was pulling out of formula one and obviously there are fairly serious financial ramifications for him,” he said.
