Ex-Formula One drivers Aguri Suzuki (Japan), Martin Brundle (UK) and Christian Danner (Germany) took to the Grand Prix Circuit at Silverstone, UK, today in the Super Aguri F1 Team car that achieved 10th position at the 2006 Brazilian Grand Prix in the hands of Takuma Sato.

Aguri Suzuki, Team Principal of the SAF1 Team, invited Martin and Christian to drive the SA06 following his team's exciting result at the 2006 season finale. The team was able to document this unique event today with the aid of the gentlemen's national Formula One host television broadcasters.

Aguri Suzuki, SAF1 Team, Team Principal:

"Our event today was really great fun! It has been 13 years since I last drove at Silverstone and I enjoyed it very much. I realised, however, that racing with this kind of car was not for me anymore and I am happy to be a Team Principal. My job now is to encourage young people to race and also reach the pinnacle of motorsport."

Martin Brundle, ITV F1 commentator:

"We're very appreciative of the great opportunity to test an F1 car on the full Grand Prix circuit at Silverstone. It has given the ITV viewers a wonderful insight into the 2007 Honda engine, gearbox and Bridgestone Potenza tyres -- even some of the current F1 drivers haven't driven on these yet!"

"We were able to obtain some very good TV pictures and sound, although I have lost my voice from shouting so hard in the cockpit. I was able to have four or five laps for myself aswell to enjoy the car and I must say that I was impressed by the SA06 car and package -- I can fully understand why Taku went so well in Brazil."

Christian Danner, RTL TV F1 commentator:

"I feel privileged that I was allowed to drive Aguri's car and I had a lot of fun out there! I gradually got used to the car lap by lap and had a great time with the team today."
