Super Aguri gets 10 signatures

As we exclusively reported two days ago, Super Aguri F1 has managed to secure the necessary 10 signatures from the other Formula 1 teams which will allow the team to compete in the 2006 World Championship. The team will now apply to the F1.

"I am very happy to be able to announce that all 10 F1 teams have approved our late entry to the Formula 1 World Championship," said Aguri Suzuki. "I would like to thank all of the teams for approving our late entry and assure them that the Super Aguri F1 team will cooperate and do our best to reach your expectations. We appreciate your support and we will not let you down."

The team is currently working around the clock at Leafield to prepare for the new season.

"We do not expect to be on the pace straight away," says managing director Daniele Audetto, "and we will use the first GPs to train the team before our definitive car reaches the track."
