Sato still waiting for ‘new’ Aguri

Tue, 30 May 2006, 12:48

The wait for a new Super Aguri is set to roll on a little longer, according to Takuma Sato.

The Japanese confirmed that the long-awaited ‘SA06’ is definitely not due to debut at Silverstone, scene of the British GP in two weeks.

Sato said: ”We won’t have many updates for the car (at Silverstone) because we’re waiting for the new car.”

Leafield based newcomers Aguri are presently bringing up the rear with a version of the four-year-old Arrows A23, with Magny Cours (July 16) pencilled in for a new car’s much awaited debut.

Reports in Japan, however, suggest that ‘SA06’ will not be as ‘new’ as some had hoped for, particularly with partner Honda’s fading support.

Indeed, it is suggested that the car is simply a long-overdue development of the existing Aguri contender.
