Super Aguri F1 Team drivers Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson continued to struggle with the SA07 on day two of the 2007 Belgian Grand Prix weekend.

Takuma Sato:

"The car had improved a bit this morning with the changes made over night and the team worked really hard with the data collected yesterday. I was happier with the balance today, but we knew it was going to be a tough session. It's such a shame that we could not introduce more performance in Qualifying. I just hope that tomorrow everything turns into a positive for us."

Anthony Davidson:

"It's been a very difficult weekend here in Spa and it came to a head here in Qualifying today. We went the wrong way with car balance in Qualifying as a last resort, and it was worth a try. But it made it to hard to drive and grained the rear tyres quite a lot by the end of the lap, so there was no more that I could give. On this performance, we are seriously going to have to consider our race options for tomorrow."

Graham Taylor, Sporting Director:

"We are in the position our opposition has wanted for a long time now. They've expected us to be at this level and, sportingly, we have succumbed to their behest. But they shouldn't be fooled our fighting spirit is intact."
