New names for Aguri’s new future

Fri, 14 March 2008, 05:46

Two names have cropped up as favourites to lead a new management structure at the newly-sold Super Aguri team.

The Japanese squad’s usual managing director, Daniele Audetto, has conspicuously not made the trip to Melbourne, shortly after the buyout by Magma Group was confirmed.

Former team owner Aguri Suzuki’s precise role at the Leafield based squad is reportedly also up for grabs, and an interesting face in the team’s paddock area on Friday was GP2 team boss and former formula one man David Price.

Martin Leach, the figure behind the London based Magma Group, is also in Australia for the 2008 opener.

Meanwhile, the Dutch publication Formule 1 Race Report suggests that Jost Capito, instrumental in Ford’s rally efforts, could also be involved in Super Aguri’s restructured management.
