Super Aguri F1 Team is pleased to announce its continued partnership with Virgin Atlantic for the 2007 Japanese and Chinese Grands Prix.

Virgin Atlantic (Japan) and SAF1 Team driver Takuma Sato have already enjoyed a four-year personal partnership and, following a successful partnership with the Team during the 2006 Japanese Grand Prix, Virgin Atlantic has decided to increase its support for the 2007 season with inclusion of the next race in Shanghai via its Chinese division.

The two-race agreement sees Virgin Atlantic branding on the team's SA07 cars and garage environment for Rounds 15 and 16 of the FIA Formula One World Championship, with discussions continuing for a full-calendar partnership in 2008.

Aguri Suzuki, Team Principal, Super Aguri F1 Team:

"I am very happy that the team is able to receive support from Virgin Atlantic. Having one of the world's most renowned airline companies as a Team partner gives us great confidence. We are at our home race in Japan this week and then we travel directly to Shanghai, so we hope that we will be able to show our partners performances that are worthy of their support during the closing stages of the 2007 Championship."
