SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM experienced an encouraging day, as both Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson found a small improvement in pace for the second day of the 2008 Malaysian Grand Prix weekend.

Takuma Sato

"I think that the team did a great job again, under the circumstances. We showed good speed in the morning as I did Qualifying simulation and I was happy with the balance. During my first run in Qualifying the grip level was quite low and I had traffic, but then on the last run I hooked up everything I needed and I enjoyed the lap. I will certainly try to make a good race tomorrow."

Anthony Davidson

"Another difficult Qualifying session today for us. I think that we have improved slightly since the last race. My middle run this afternoon was good, but I struggled to find the right balance in the car for the last run."

Graham Taylor, Sporting Director

"All credit to the drivers, engineers and the boys after a very difficult Friday. We came back fighting; we had a good practice session this morning and a better balance in the car. We were a little worried about the forecast of rain during Qualifying as neither driver has run with the new ECU rules in the wet, but fortuitously that didn't occur. Our small victory of Takuma beating one of the Force India cars gives us hope for tomorrow."
